udge Parker celebrates his 174th birthday | Arts & Culture
Despite the threat of stormy weather in the afternoon, hundreds of guests came out to help celebrate the 174th birthday of Judge Isaac Parker at the Fort Smith Museum of History on Saturday (Oct. 13).
The guest of honor, Judge Parker (portrayed by Floyd Robison), arrived to the museum riding in a wagon.
“This is the fourth year we have had this event. It is very popular and gets people into the museum even bringing in a new audience. It is a fun event and cake and punch are always fun,” said Leisa Gramlich, executive director of the museum.
Admission to the birthday party was free. Wagon rides were also available at no charge. Later in the afternoon, the Law Breakers and Peace Makers participated in a gunfight outside the museum in a nearby street.
