It’s not like you need a reason to take a drive up the Gunflint Trail but if it makes you feel better then here’s a reason. Sunday is the annual Pie and Ice Cream Social held at Chik-Wauk Museum. Visiting the Museum is always a good time and if the weather is nice then be sure to take a hike too. There are quite a few hikes to choose from and the last time I was there blueberries still lined the hiking trail to Blueberry Hill. Whether or not there are blueberries the views from the hiking trails are beautiful and it’s great to spend time outside.
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center will host an Old Fashioned Pie and Ice Cream Social on the museum front porch and grounds over Labor Day weekend on Sunday, August 31, from 11am – 4pm. As always, there’s a suggested donation for pie, ice cream and beverage. This day also features the annual Chik-Wauk “sidewalk” sale which offers steep discounts on many gift shop items. It will be a fun way to wrap up the summer and say “so long till next year,” to our friends and neighbors.
