It’s a blast to the past at this block party. The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum is hosting a Block Party at the corner of William and Main Streets on Saturday, October 5, 2013. Admission to the party is FREE, and you can get in free to the museum that day too.
A Blast to the Past will begin at noon on Saturday. Bring the family to enjoy the fun, including:

At 1:00 p.m., from the Mayor’s Balcony at 204 S. Main St., Wichita’s 1892 Mayor John B. Carey (as interpreted by local actor John Boldenow) will speak, followed by an important announcement by local dignitaries.
