This event is FREE!! I have actually been to this event several years in a row. For all my Vintage lovers’ there is an added treat to this event as it takes place at the wonderful Heritage House. Also, all you living history fans, there will be people dressed for the time period giving demonstrations on how ice cream was originally made!! There is also free crafts for kids, music, and free tours!

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!
