The Friends of Heritage Square will offer their annual Spring Tea on Saturday, May 13, 2017. This year takes on a 1920s theme, honoring 1926, when Oxnard was considered “The New Hollywood”. Visitors can enjoy a total Roaring Twenties experience, including the lingo of the day, how to do the Charleston and find out why Tinsel Town stars came to Oxnard to live, work and play.
An expanded Marketplace featuring 1920s items and more will open at 11:00 AM for last minute Mother’s Day gifts. Participants can also shop for their favorite gift baskets provided by The Friends of Heritage Square.
Guests are encouraged to wear 1920s themed outfits for a chance to win a prize. Ideas for 1920s styles will be posted on www.heritagesquareoxnard.com and www.facebook.com/heritagesquareoxnard. Search Heritage Square’s Tea by the Sea. For those who don’t have time to create their own 20’s look, there will be moderately priced items available for purchase to slip into before tea time.
Seating and tea service begins at 1:30 pm. Piano music of the Roaring Twenties will be provided by Ray Mautner. Refreshments include tea sandwiches, scones and desserts, catered by La Dolce Vita Restaurant. Tea service will be delivered by costumed docents.
In addition to tea service, “Prohibition Cocktails” will also be available, no host, compliments of Ventura County’s 1920s woman bootlegger.
