Safety Harbor

Sept. 12 will be Dr. Seuss Day

Get ready for Dr. Seuss Day on Sept. 12 in Safety Harbor as proclaimed by Mayor Andy Steingold. Festivities will begin at 10 a.m. with a parade down Main Street featuring the Cat in the Hat and the Grinch. Following the presentation, readings from Dr. Seuss books will take place at Syd Entel Galleries with a special reception that evening from 6 to 8 p.m. Why Dr. Seuss? The gallery at 247 Main St. in Safety Harbor will present the Art of Dr. Seuss national touring exhibition Sept. 12 through Oct. 10. This exhibit chronicles a side of Theodor Seuss Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss, that most readers have never seen. The show will include images from his varied careers, including rare early works of poetry, advertising, World War II editorial cartoons, magazine covers from the 1920s and 1930s, his collection of unorthodox taxidermy and never-before seen works from Seuss' personal archives.
