Maytag is celebrating the 100th birthday celebration of its first washing machine. The first major event is an open-to-the-public birthday party at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry on Oct. 13, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Maytag Repairman and Willard Scott of NBC's "Today" are hosting the event.
The birthday party will include a historical Maytag laundry exhibit with multiple Maytag antiques and collectibles on display. Guests at the party will have the chance to meet the Maytag Repairman and Scott, and have their photos taken with them.
As part of a cross-country Appreciation Tour, the Maytag Repairman will be visiting Atlanta, Baltimore, St. Louis, and Seattle during the next several weeks.
