COVID-19 NOTE:  THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED in 2020.  We look forward to putting on a quality event in 2021.

Enjoy ice cream and homemade cake while listening to the 1st Brigade Band on the grounds of the Octagon House Museum.  The band MAKES HISTORY LIVE by presenting period brass band music, performed on antique instruments. Attired in uniforms and gowns, the Band’s musicians, color guard, and costumed ladies take you back to the 1860’s; to that turbulent era known as the Civil War. A nostalgic portrayal of the atmosphere of days gone by is generated by a unique form of showmanship that blends the sights and sounds of the period with historical anecdotes.

Fees : Entertainment is free. $5 donation for a generous plate of cake and ice cream
