Remembering a Big Day for Springfield

March 3 @ 9:00 am - 8:30 pm

The Old State Capitol historic site will celebrate the anniversary of Springfield’s selection as the new Illinois capital Friday with free coffee from Custom Cup and the chance to win a Cubs “W” flag that flew over the historic building.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., visitors will get free coffee from local roaster Custom Cup. Any visitor Friday can enter a raffle for a chance to win one of six “W” flags that were raised over the Old State Capitol last year after the Chicago Cubs won the World Series from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

The building will stay open late until 8:30 p.m. to serve as one of the locations for the First Friday Scavenger Hunt.
