Event-goers will explore how it was made before the days of refrigeration during ice cream-making demonstrations.

After sampling culinary treats and libations, take part in a game of bocce ball on the bowling green. Stroll the lantern-lit grounds and immerse yourself in the 18th century as you mingle with costumed residents. Enjoy 18th-century music, dancing, and more historic fun.
