Re-enactors will portray well-to-do Peninsula residents of the past, gossiping about neighbors and discussing fashion of the times, at the San Mateo County Historical Association's Victorian Days event, set for Sunday, Aug. 10.
Admission is free to the event, which will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the county history museum, located at 2200 Broadway in downtown Redwood City.
Victorian tea sessions will be held at noon, 1 p.m, and 2 p.m, when children and adults can drink tea, eat finger sandwiches and scones, and watch the re-enactors.
The tea will cost $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12. There will also be children's craft activities.
Visitors can stroll "History Lane" to see exhibits and meet with representatives from history groups on the Peninsula.
