Join Mister Ed’s Elephant Museum & Candy Emporium for “S’more Summer, Please!” a free end-of-summer celebration and school supply drive on Friday, Aug. 10, from 6-8 p.m.
Cozy up around the campfire for special s’mores made by you. Make a classic s’more with graham crackers, marshmallow and chocolate.

We’ll also have delicious candy toppings and live music.
