Heading into the final week of preparations for the official grand opening ceremonies on September 26th, the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum has confirmed a 63-year-old ghostbuster will be among the participants.
Canadian born actor, comedian, screenwriter, and musician, Dan Ackroyd—one of the stars of the 1984 comedy film Ghostbusters — is among the museum’s benefactors and will be among the participants in a Harley Davidson Ride from the motorcycle dealership in Grande Prairie, to the Museum in Wembley.
Every participant will have free admission and a tour, with the Aykroyd family, while the actor and his wife Donna, will be the guests of honor at a Grande Prairie black tie ball on the evening of the 26th.
That will follow the unveiling of the museum cornerstone, and naming of the Powell Path at the Pipestone Creek site earlier in day.
Prior to that from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM, on both the 25th and the 26th, museum namesake Doctor Philip J. Currie will join those digging for fossils at the bone bed site.
In an interview last month, founding President and CEO, George Jacob, told us the award-winning 42,000 foot museum building was completed on budget, in record time, and it opened its doors on September 3rd, welcoming 5,500visitors in the first two days.
