To help celebrate July as National Ice Cream Month there’s an event being held today in downtown Indianapolis. It’s a way to make sure the big city consumers are making the proper connection between ice cream and Indiana dairy farms. It’s the 28th annual Ice Cream Social sponsored by the American Dairy Association Indiana.
“This is a way we give back to the community, but also celebrate ice cream,” says ADA Indiana director of communications, Jenni Browning.
Browning says celebrity scoopers will be dishing out ice cream from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monument Circle.
“It is $3 sundaes, which are huge and Edy’s donates the ice cream and Kroger donates the toppings and Prairie Farms donates the whipped cream, so it’s delicious sundaes.”
Besides ice cream there will be other activities taking place.
“We always make sure we have a dairy cow and calf and lots of fun activity for kids, whether it is face painting and also mascots, it’s really a fun packed three hours,” Browning said.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Central Indiana.
