We are excited to have back again with us this year, San Joaquin Valley Antique Flywheelers, EDGETA Branch 63 from Clovis, CA (Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association) They have become a regular part of our Annual Ice Cream Social Day, and we are excited to have them once again be part of this fun-filled day.

They will be bringing with them several of their displays, fun for all ages.

Beginning at 10:00 am the Sierra Steamers offer a free demonstration of a “Steam-Up”, a 1905 Dolbeer Steam Donkey located in the Museum’s Parking Lot. Bring the kids and let them blow the whistle. Kids of “ALL” ages will enjoy this demonstration!

At 12:00 pm come witness a live demonstration in our Redinger Powerhouse, the only fully functioning demonstration powerhouse in the world on museum property that can generate electricity!
