(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Robidoux Row Museum hosted a "Birthday Bash" to celebrate Joseph Robidoux's 235th birthday. 

The museum gave free tours of the facility and welcomed vendors, storytellers, musical performances, and a old time-themed wagon.

Daniel Johnson, Executive Director of the Robidoux Row Museum, says the event was about letting people learn more about the city's founding.

"We want the people in the community to really see where St. Joe came from." Johnson said. "This is the oldest building we have in St. Joe, is the Robidoux Row, and so we really wanted the people in St. Joe to be able to see it's heritage."

Joseph Robidoux was born in 1783 and died at the age of 85 in 1868.

More rain fell across the area Saturday night and the threat for rain will continue throughout the day on Sunday but the good news is that most will stay dry. Throughout the day, expect more clouds than sun but we could see a little more sunshine during the afternoon. An advancing cold front could bring a stray shower during the afternoon. Highs today are going to be in the 80s.
