VIDEO: Shoppers World Lights Up Framingham Again
Framingham Selectman Chair Charlie Sisitsky helped light up the the newest exhibit at the Framingham History Center: Shoppers World 1951-1994 Friday night.
The highlight of the event was when Framingham Selectman Chair Charlie Sisitsky helped light up the old neon sign that stood high above Shoppers World.
The sign had been stored in the basement of the History Center, since 1999; but for this special exhibit Malden's Dave Waller, a special effects specialist, and Natick's Jeff Crosby, an electrician, helped restore the sign for Friday night's festivities.
The public grand opening of the exhibit is today from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is $5 for non-members and free for members and children.
The Framingham History Center is offering a special $19.51 membership to commemorate the exhibit.
The exhibit will be on display through Labor Day and open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m.
