National Ice Cream Day: Local Ice Cream Shops

July 16th is National Ice Cream Day!

We are half-way through the month of July, temperatures are rising, the kids are bronzing nicely from days of summer sun, and we are in the full swing of ice cream season. If you haven’t indulged in a scoop, cup, or cone of your own yet this summer, there is no better day than today!

A big thank you goes out to President Ronald Reagan who proclaimed July as National Ice Cream Month and established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in the month of July.
