Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum third Annual Ice Cream Social to celebrate 50th Anniversary with Music, Magic, Girl Scout Troops, a Book signing and more. On June 12, 2016, 12-4 p.m., the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will launch its third annual Ice Cream Social in Mathews Park at 295 West Ave, Norwalk, CT. Hunter Arton, a Wilton, CT resident and Andy Garfunkel of Norwalk will co-chair the event which features a wide range of family-friendly entertainment for children and adults.
Trustee Hunter Arton said, "We are excited to welcome the community to our annual Ice Cream Social. This year's event will celebrate the Museum's 50th anniversary with a nod to the 1960s." A clown, a mouse tale, music, magic and of course, plenty of ice cream will kick-off this cherished summer event where visitors will shop at booths hosted by a variety of local crafters and take part in a wide range of fun, family-friendly activities. A coloring station and an assortment of games such as Badminton, Jacob's Ladder, marbles, Magic Fish, Jump Rope, Deer Hunter, Game of Graces and more will be on hand to entertain children of all ages. Visitors will also be able to view a vintage 1960s car display and rummage through a jumble sale where for a few dollars they might find a treasure. While general admission to the event is free and so are selected programs, the Museum will charge for some of the activities and for all food sold during the event. Tickets will be available at LMMM's booths at designated locations in Mathews Park.
