6th ANNUAL ICE CREAM SOCIAL
July 28, 12pm - 3pm
The Sweetest Day of Summer!
Fearing performances of
LITTLE GRANDPA'S BIG SURPRISE
Join us for one of the most fun-filled community events of the summer! We'll have puppet shows, carnival games, face-painting, and make-and-take puppet crafts. And, of course, ice cream! Meet your neighbors, feed a hungry ‘gator or two, and enjoy an ice cream cone with friends while singing along to the puppet show Little Grandpa’s Big Surprise, featured in this year's Driveway Tour.
Activities for the Day
Free Ice Cream
Nail Polish Painting
Feed the Gator Game
Hit the Target Game
And more from sPARKit and Mobile Mia!
This year, sPARKit is coming to the Ice Cream Social! sPARKit is a colorful, celebratory, mobile pop-up park that is used to engage the public through table games, conversations, and fun!
And make paper finger puppets at Mobile Mia from the Minneapolis Institute of Art!
