The museum will offer a cash bar, snacks and 1980s music along with a special dance appearance by the 1980 Olympic Winter Games mascot Roni Raccoon.

"We are inviting the community to the Trivia Night as a fun get-together during the cold of winter," said Susanna Fout, collections manager at the Lake Placid Olympic Museum.

The Trivia Night will also be an opportunity for visitors to see some of the recent changes at the Lake Placid Olympic Museum and will act as a fundraiser to assist in future exhibit renovations.
