Wednesday night's storm closed some school buildings in Northville and cast doubt on whether the districts' third grade students would continue their Victorian Festival celebration Friday.
However, power was restored to Amerman Elementary, Cooke School and the district's transportation department around 4 p.m. Thursday. Classes plus all regularly scheduled activities will resume Friday morning, according to an email from the district.
"With cooler temperatures forecasted, please make sure children dress accordingly as many activities are outside during the event," the email said.
Elementary students from both public and private schools, high school students, district employees and community volunteers will participate in the program, according to the district. Everyone will dress in period clothing and help educate the students about Northville and Michigan’s rich history during the late 1800s.
Students will explore five historic learning stations in downtown Northville:
- Victorian era children’s games hosted by Northville Parks and Recreation at Ford Field
- historic stories about our community’s past at the Northville District Library
- an interactive experience with a magician at Town Square
- period music and entertainment at Genitti’s-Hole-In-The-Wall provided by Northville High School music programs
- a guided village tour at Mill Race Village
