Mt. Pleasant Glass Museum officials are introducing an event on Saturday that they hope will become a new community tradition.

A Glass and Arts Carnival will be held on museum grounds, said Cassandra Vivian, museum CEO.

Vivian said it's hoped the grassy area in front of the museum doors will be filled with crafters, displays and assorted venders.

“We are attracting glass vendors, antiques, authors, quilters and a few crafts,” Vivian said. She will have a table set up that will feature books she has penned over the years on various subjects.

To date, Vivian said about 15 vendors have signed up.

“We can fit up to 40,” Vivian said.

There is no electricity available on site, but the event does hope to offer food.

Vendors must provide their own tables, which can not exceed eight feet in length, their own seating and cover if needed or required.

Vivian requests all vendors be at the event one hour prior to the 9 a.m. opening.

The museum recently moved to the former Lenox plant.

“They are really working hard to make the museum a success,” Mt. Pleasant Mayor Gerald Lucia said. “I have been out to some of the various programs that have been offered there, and they are also so interesting but they really need to have the participation increase. Glass is what this town was built on and this museum is a wonderful tribute to all of the aunts and uncles and grandfathers who worked in the industry. You can go and visit it and see what they did. It's interesting and now the vendor event will also make it fun.”

The Glass and Arts Carnival will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of the museum, which is located one mile east of Mt. Pleasant along Route 31. There is no fee to attend.
