The Greater Oneonta Historical Society (GOHS) will host its seventh annual Cake Walk on Destination Oneonta's first Fabulous Friday of 2019, May 3, at the Oneonta History Center, 183 Main Street. GOHS has been part of Fabulous Fridays since 2010, when Destination Oneonta (then Main Street Oneonta) began coordinating the downtown Friday evening events.
Between 5 PM and 8 PM there will be a dozen cake walks during which a lucky person will win a cake (or a gift certificate for a cake) donated by a local baker. In these traditional cake walks, a ticket is purchased to participate. While a tune is played on the History Center's historic Shearer player piano, participants walk - or strut - on numbered squares. When the music stops, everyone lands on a square. A number is drawn, and the person standing on the matching number wins the cake of their choice.
The History Center will be open on May 3 from 12 noon to 8 PM. For more information, contact (607) 432-0960 or info@OneontaHistory.org.
