New Show!

Master of circus arts and sideshow stunts, Martika will be doing an interactive show on Saturday at 12:30!

Sword-swallower, fire-eater, and international woman of mystery, Martika will bring high octane entertainment to the Main Street Stage this summer. You won’t believe one person can do all the things she does!

Martika’s shows are entertaining and even inspirational, which makes the show perfect for the whole family.

You can see some highlights from her performances below, but you’ll definitely want to see her act in person. When was the last time you saw someone swallow a sword in real life?!

Life Celebration featuring Lt. Governor Adam Gregg

The Hoover Presidential Foundation has confirmed Lt. Governor Adam Gregg as the keynote speaker for the Life Celebration at 1pm on Saturday, August 4th.

The event will be held at the Hoover National Historic Site, across from the birthplace cottage, and will feature patriotic music from the group, The Extension Chords, followed by short speeches from Hoover Presidential Library director, Thomas Schwartz and Hoover National Historic Site superintendent, Pete Swisher.  The Lt. Governor will then present the keynote address.

“Adam Gregg was a history major in college,” said Jerry Fleagle, president and CEO of the Foundation. “He and his family really enjoy visiting and taking in all the West Branch history.”

Many members of Hoover family will also be in attendance for the event, including Herbert Hoover’s grandson, Andy Hoover, great grandchildren Leslie Hoover-Lauble, Alex Hoover and Margaret Hoover, along with members of their families. We invite everyone to come by and meet the Hoovers and welcome them back to West Branch!
