The Gettysburg Dime Museum will be celebrating its grand opening this weekend the best way it knows how - with a lineup of sideshow performers.
The newly opened museum, filled with a collection oddities and artifacts, will host the event on Saturday at 3 p.m.
Entry to the museum will cost standard admission, but the acts will be performing free to the public out in front of the 224 Baltimore St. location in Gettysburg.
The event will feature James Taylor, a sideshow historian; Titano Strongman, who will perform strongman feats and sword swallowing; Reggie Bügmüncher, "Philadelphia's Queen of the Sideshow;" the Amazing Arioch, an escape artist and McMcDade, a ventriloquist.
Mark Kosh, the owner of the museum, said the public should come out "just to experience the strange, the odd and see some traditional and not-so-traditional sideshow acts."
