It's time once again for you to get out your parasol and loafers and come down to Fort Walla Walla Museum’s annual Ice Cream Social! The event will take place on Sunday, August 20. This social gathering celebrates a time when the days passed by at a slower pace, and the local community came together to enjoy the lazy days of summer. There will be entertainment and fun for the whole family.
Join us for ice cream and Klicker’s strawberry toppings—free with paid admission! There will be pioneer games, old-time music, a Living History performance, and bouncy castles for the kids. Our new family favorite—the pioneer dress-up booth—will be set up for visitors to borrow a costume for the day.
On the grounds will be a stunning collection of antique vehicles from the Walla Walla Historic Auto Club. Also this year we are happy to welcome the Strictly British Motor Club and their British car collection.
The Museum's own Oregon Trail Band, featuring Bob Bohlman, Jerry Wilson, and Lon Ferguson, will be on-hand to take you back to times past with a selection of popular 19th century music.
The Ice Cream Social is sponsored by Best Western Plus Walla Walla Suites Inn, Columbia REA, Jumpin Jellybeanz, Klicker Antique & Fruit Store, Opp & Seibold General Construction, and Baskin Robbins.
