Come One, Come All to the Big Top Circus at the
37th annual Ice Cream Social
The Victorian Circus has come to town and raised their tent on the President's lawn. To celebrate, the Harrison's are throwing an Ice Cream Social.
Admission includes a walk-thru tour of the home of the 23rd President of the United States complete with visits with historical enactors.
Children of all ages will enjoy a visit to the REI Realestate Services Kid's Tent where they can attend a one-day Circus Camp and learn to juggle, walk the tight rope or balance a spinning plate. Children can also make patriotic crafts and explore the grounds on the Passport to History treasure hunt.
The whole family will enjoy a variety of lawn games and the sweet Dixieland sound of the White River Jazz band playing live music!
Don't leave without a visit to the Plews Shadley Racher and Braun's Declaration Depot for a visit with Thomas Jefferson. He will likely ask you to pick up the quill and sign your own name to this historic document.
Black Diamond BBQ will be on hand selling pork sandwiches and hot dogs or treat yourself to some fresh popped pop corn.
One dip of cold delicious Blue Bell ice cream is included with your paid admission.
