En­joy an Ice Cream So­cial

Catron Courier - - News -

The Sil­ver City Mu­seum is proud to host its 35th An­nual Ice Cream So­cial on July Fourth from 11 AM to 4 PM. For decades the Ice Cream So­cial has been a high­light of the lo­cal In­de­pen­dence Day cel­e­bra­tion. A full slate of live entertainment, sea­sonal treats, and old­fash­ioned pas­times will again be fea­tured. But this year there will be even more de­light­ful di­ver­sions and his­tor­i­cal ambiance!

Ad­mis­sion and chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties are free, in­clud­ing re­fresh­ments and face paint­ing. Live mu­sic will en­ter­tain guests in the shady court­yard, in­clud­ing mariachi singer An­gel­ica Padilla, fid­dling duo Bayou Seco, gui­tarist Danny Cor­dova, and the Con­cert Band of the South­west. Vis­i­tors will be of­fered ice cream, root beer floats, pop­corn, and soda. This year, Braz­zas Grill will also of­fer three kinds of hot dogs: Sono­ran, Hawai­ian, and New Mex­i­can.

Chil­dren will be amused with old-fash­ioned games and crafts, in­clud­ing Bub­ble­ma­nia, hoop rolling, sack races, clothes­pin drop, and more. Folks of all ages look for­ward to our an­nual Cake Walk – for some, the cen­tral at­trac­tion of the Ice Cream So­cial.

The Ice Cream So­cial is also

ex­pand­ing to in­clude the ven­dors and en­ter­tain­ers. In the tree-lined lot ad­ja­cent to the court­yard, guests can have their faces painted, watch jugglers, get a psy­chic read­ing, shop for gems and jew­elry, and learn about some of our great lo­cal causes and or­ga­ni­za­tions.

The Mu­seum and Mu­seum Store will open, free of charge. Vis­i­tors can take in pho­tog­ra­pher Delilah Mon­toya’s Con­tem­po­rary Cas­tas:

Nues­tra “Cal­i­dad” as well as our lo­cal his­tory ex­hibits.

This an­nual event would not be pos­si­ble with­out sup­port from Finn’s Gallery and Western Bank. Other key sup­plies are do­nated or sup­plied at cost by Food Bas­ket, Al­bert­sons Mar­ket and Dem­ing Coca-Cola Bot­tling Com­pany. Cakes are do­nated by lo­cal vol­un­teers. Ev­ery per­son serv­ing, per­form­ing, and as­sist­ing with the Ice Cream So­cial is do­nat­ing his or her time to make this a spe­cial hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tion for the com­mu­nity. To join the fun as a vol­un­teer, please con­tact Vol­un­teer Co­or­di­na­tor Jo Lutz at 575-596-0229. More in­for­ma­tion can be found at sil­verci­ty­mu­seum.org.
