Springfield Museums Celebrate 110 Years of Dr. Seuss

DR SeuSS BDAYSPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) –Today, the Springfield Museums celebrated 110 years of Dr. Seuss’s legacy, with a little help from The Cat in the Hat.

The yearly event featured family activities, and performances, including one by Brooklyn group, The Deedle Deedle Dees.

There was also a Dr. Seuss cake contest, where the coolest creation took home a raffle prize.

Winners were excited they snagged bragging rights. “It was Dr. Seuss themed, so we went for an open book, a popup book. We just went for it. Made some leaves, made some cool stuff, and just went for it,” said winner Sarah Landry. “Finally! For the past two years we took second place. Feels good!” winner Brigitte Daniel exclaimed.

There were also planetarium shows, Yertle the Turtle collages.

Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

    I miss the days before they put all that Dr. Seuss stuff in the Quadrangle, when you used to be able to park there and to be able to walk into any of the museums without being shaken down for money.
