July 4th Ice Cream Social

Come One, Come All to the Big Top Circus at the 37th annual Ice Cream Social set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 4 July on the lawn of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, 1230 North Delaware Street, Indianapolis.

The Victorian Circus has come to town and raised their tent! Mix and mingle with the circus actors, like our stilt walking Uncle Sam, as well as members of Harrison's family, staff and friends.

Admission includes a walk-through tour of the home of the 23rd President of the United States complete with visits with enactors.

Children of all ages will enjoy attending a one-day Circus Camp where you can learn to juggle, walk the tight rope or balance a spinning plate. Children can also have their face painted, 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. And, don't leave without a visit to the 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.

One dip of ice cream is included with your paid admission: $12, adults; $5 students (5-11), and children under 4 are free.
