LOCATION & LOGISTICS: (Due to Massillon City Lincoln Way construction and MassMu construction changes may be made to entrances/exits)
The main entrance to the party will be from the Massillon City Municipal Government Center parking lot or at First Street and Charles Street (near the monument). Please note that these are the only two entrances and exits.
First Street SE will be barricaded to regulate traffic. Should you need to drop off handicapped persons, please pull up to the corner of Tremont and First Street SE and a staff member will let you through to the main entrance.  There is additional handicapped parking in the Municipal Government Center parking lot.


Free parking will be available in the municipal parking lots, the parking deck on South Erie Street, and on adjacent streets. See the map at left for more information, or click here to see a large image of parking locations.

$2 Flower Clip
$5 Light Up Flower Lei
$15 T-Shirt (or FREE with purchase of MassMu membership of $25 or more!)


The Massillon Museum will offer eco-friendly solutions for water! Our reusable water bottles will be for sale, and water stations will be set up throughout the party area.

• Instead of using one-time use water bottles (which would take 500-1000 to biodegrade), MassMu will offer Island Party BPA-free reusable water bottles.
• Kimble recycling containers will be available in the party area.


For more information, call the Massillon Museum at 330-833-4061.
