That does sound like fun! Too bad I'm already tied up with other plans or I'd join you, for sure.

Just a head's up....Downtown Desoto will be open Saturday, July 2nd from 8am-5pm. The owner, Jim Raysick, opens his museum to the public only 1 or 2 days a year so it may be a while before you get to the opportunity to see it again.

Note: This is open in conjunction with a downtown festival so parking could be tight.

Last November they did not charge admission fee however I don't know if there will be this year.
