The Big Dipper Ice Cream Festival Hits Worcester

Friday, June 29, 2012

 

Eat ice cream to your heart's content at the 24th annual Big Dipper Ice Cream Festival.

Bring the whole family to the 24th annual Big Dipper All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival tomorrow. The festival will take place at Elm Park from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm, rain or shine, and is sponsored by the Children’s Friend

Participating ice cream stands include national chains like Cold Stone Creamery and Dairy Queen, along with local stores like Crystal Caves of Auburn and Janine’s Frostee of Ware. In all, nine different ice cream shops are expected to participate. 

If ice cream’s not your thing, there will also be a food tent, clowns, balloons, face painting, cheerleaders, team mascots, moonwalks, and raffles. 

Local musicians will provide the entertainment. Breje Williams, Dale LePage and the Manhattans, Chuck & Mud, Elisabeth and Mike Gondek, the Joy of Music Jazz Ensemble, and the New England Dance Center will all perform. 

The Worcester Fire Department will be on hand for a fire safety demonstration and the Lions’ District 33-A Sightmobile will be offering free vision and hearing checks. 

Children’s Friend provides a variety of services to children including mental health services, foster and adoption care management, training and education, grief support, and child care to children and families.
