This is not your ordinary Ice Cream Social! All ages will enjoy this free community event which features ice cream, homemade lemonade, and musical entertainment as one may have celebrated in Victorian Riverside during the 1890s. Guests will have the opportunity to play authentic Victorian games, learn how old-fashioned hand cranked ice cream is made, operate a citrus sizer, and watch a special patriotic program by the Sons of the American Revolution that will include: musket firing, cotillion dance, and a parade through the grounds, all in revolutionary-war era costumes. Musical entertainment will include bagpipes, dulcimer, piano, vocal performances, and of course a barbershop quartet!

Event Parking: Due to limited parking at the Heritage House, please plan to park on the street or across the street. Please note that the parking gate will be locked after 4:30 pm.
