We’d be seriously delinquent in our ice cream loving duties if we didn’t take some time to remind everyone about the upcoming 12th Annual Super Scooper All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia on July 3rd, 4th and 5th.
The festival will be held from noon to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The admission price is ONLY $5.00 per person. On Saturday, July 3rd, the festival will also be open from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. to coincide with the free concert and fireworks taking place on the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing. All proceeds benefit the Joshua Kahan Fund to fight pediatric leukemia and the Children’s Hospital Oncology Division. (More details here.)
Over 20 different ice cream and water ice companies will be on hand to dispense their delicious wares, including Turkey Hill. We’re not sure what else you could be doing on that weekend, but the chance to attend an all-you-can-eat ice cream festival for only five bucks AND help out a very worthy cause seems like the best thing you could possibly do!
One of the cool things about the festival is that you get each scoop of ice cream in a new dish and it’s customary for attendees to stack their dishes up and carry them around while they sample various flavors. Sort of the like the gentleman below, who ate 40 scoops at last year’s festival!
