CHILDREN - ICE CREAM - FIREWORKS on JULY 9
Cherry Ice Cream Sunday by Depolo

FREE children’s programs, ice cream, museum tours, WWI exhibit and fireworks.

The Historical Society’s annual Ice Cream Social is Saturday, July 9th. While the annual Fireworks Festival is taking place in downtown New Castle, just up the hill the Historical Society will be serving free ice cream, cake, and refreshments.

7 PM – Children’s Program

The evening kicks off with a children’s program in the Medure Annex building. Jim Schneider, a member of the King Beaver Archaeology Club, will speak to children ages 5 and up about the history of how and when our local Native American Indians arrived and the tools that they used. Jim, along with other members of the club, will have Indian artifacts on display. The children will then have the opportunity to make an Apache arrowhead necklace.

8 PM – Cake & Ice Cream

Cake and ice cream will be served on the front porch of the Clavelli History Center.

New WWII Exhibit – FREE Tours

  • Visitors will be able to view a new WWI exhibit which includes historic posters, uniforms, helmets, gas masks, and photos
  • Free tours of the museum will also be available until the start of the fireworks
