Firefighters get half-price admission to the Village for this old-fashioned fireman's muster. For fire, see an exciting demonstration of historical 19th-century hand-pump fire trucks, and lend a hand by helping to pump the water. Enjoy a fire truck parade around the Common. For ice, cool off with demonstrations of 18th- and 19th- century ice-cream making (using period tools, techniques, recipes, and ingredients.) Popular flavors in the 18th-century included gooseberry, ginger, and even asparagus ice cream. For details: 800-733-1830; www.osv.org Hide
