July 25 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Social & Garden Party
The historic setting of Great Road’s Hearthside House Museum is an ideal spot for some old-fashioned summertime fun. And nothing goes together better than summertime and ice cream. On Sunday afternoon, July 25th, the Friends of Hearthside is offering a nostalgic filled afternoon with an Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Social & Garden Party being held between 12-3 pm.
The event features ice cream sundaes, customized with a choice of toppings, to enjoy while listening to ragtime music in the background. A barbershop quartet will stroll the grounds and serenade with old time tunes. For those who don’t want to sit back and be entertained, there will be lawn games such as croquet, ring toss, bean bag, and horseshoes. On exhibit will be a turn-of-the-century phonograph along with original recordings. And as a throw back to carnival days will be fortune telling by a tarot card reader.
The museum’s first floor will also be open for those who may have never been inside before or for anyone wishing to see the latest discovery of a hidden door found during restoration work. The Gift Shop will also be open.
The event will take place under a tent, rain or shine. Advance tickets only at www.hearthsidehouse.org. Cost is $16 per person; $8 for youth age 9 and under.
All proceeds support the nonprofit volunteer organization’s efforts to preserve, protect, and interpret the history of the 1810 Hearthside House and the Great Road Heritage Campus at Chase Farm Park.
Hearthside is located at 677 Great Road in Lincoln. For more information, contact 726-0597 or email@example.com.
