Fire and Ice Day

    Improve listing Presented by

Firefighters get half-price admission on July 19 for this old-time fireman’s muster. See demonstrations of antique hand-pump fire trucks, and watch the fire truck parade around the Common. And to cool off, costumed historians will be making ice cream the old-fashioned way, including vintage flavors such as gooseberry, parmesan, and asparagus (yes, asparagus!). The fifth annual chili contest will give visitors a chance to sample the fare from local restaurants and OSV’s own Oliver Wight Tavern.
