This 1950s home movie from the Museum of the Gulf Coast captures children attending birthday parties and other gatherings, over the course of several years in Port Arthur. During a backyard Easter celebration, the children search for eggs and marvel at the goodies in the Easter baskets. Later, one young girl entertains her friends with a Scottish dance. The end of the film captures a birthday party, during which the children play games with balloons.
