I Scream, You Scream

June 09, 2016

Head off the city’s summer heat with a serving or two of epically good local ice cream at the 6th Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival at Piedmont Park on July 23, 2016. You can also get the scoop on health and wellness, thanks to sponsor Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority, which will on hand to tell you it’s all about balance. (Translation: You can have that ice cream if you burn off a few calories in the pursuit of fitness!) The fun kicks off at 11 am and runs until 6 pm, ensuring plenty of time for ice cream, exercise and lots of entertainment before you head back to Hotel Indigo Atlanta Downtown to a) crash from a sugar high or b) duck into JP Atlanta for dinner. Whatever you do, don’t miss the 3 pm Ice Cream Eating Competition. Enter or not, it’s your call – but according to current ice cream stats, every one of us gobbles up 22 quarts of ice cream a year. Whether you do it with an audience (or solo, at midnight, in front of the freezer) is up to you.
