Posted by Turkey Hill Team on June 7th, 2010

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, if you’re a fan of ice cream (and who isn’t?) and you happen to be in the Harrisburg area this Wednesday at noon, you MUST stop by the Capitol Building for the June Dairy Month celebration.

Like last year’s celebration, which is organized by the wonderful folks at the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association, the crowd will watch in awe as the world’s largest ice cream sundae is created right before their eyes. (It’s not officially the “world’s largest” but it’s close.) The giant sundae will be served up to anyone who wants some. If you’re curious to see what a giant ice cream sundae on the Capitol steps looks like, check out our entry from last year’s event or just take a gander at the picture at the top of this entry. As always, Turkey Hill is proud to provide the 90 gallons of ice cream that will be used to make the gigantic dessert.

To recap,  stop by the Capitol Building steps in Harrisburg this Wednesday, June 9 at noon if you want to witness a fitting tribute to the hard-working dairy farmers of Pennsylvania and sample some delicious Turkey Hill ice cream. Free of charge, of course. Now that’s what we call a lunch break!

  10. Jane M says:

    June may be Dairy Month but everyday is ice cream day.

  11. Caroline of Manalapan says:

    Those kiddie pools come in handy. We had one for our kids when they were small and hubby love it to give the dog a bath. Never thought of using one for a super sized ice cream sundae. You could have had other flavors beside vanilla but the topping make up for that. Hope it was all devoured by the crowd

  12. Mary says:

    This type of event has become a tradition at our elementary school. It started out to be The Superintendent’s Sundae and it is the end of the year culmination of our reading program. In past years our superintendent/or principal have arrived by helicopter, fire truck, parade float and many other forms of transportation. This year the top readers were allowed to make our principal into a sundae–complete with the cherries on the top.

  13. emilia says:

    I wish you wouldn’t tell us about it because it is too far for us out east!

  14. Marcy says:

    Too far for me to travel, hope everyone gets some of that treat!

  15. Nancy N says:

    Sure wish Harrisburg was closer!

  16. Robin Ames says:

    I live too far away to partake. Would have been a nice birthday dessert! (A day late, but still something fun to do!)

  17. lori says:

    I’m to far away. You should send everyone a coupon for free ice cream, so we can all celebrate!

  18. jonibee says:

    Though I can’t be there to enjoy, I can certainly envision the tasty treat!

  19. Arvella says:

    That looks soooo good. Wish I could be there. I’ll just have to make a miniature, miniature, miniature size one. How delightful.

  20. MC says:

    I wish I could twitch my nose like Samantha and be there. YUM!

  21. Pat says:

    Wow what a nice treat! Enjoy all who can take part in the treat! 🙂

  22. Ellen says:

    Those of you who live in the Harrisburg, Pa. area, enjoy. What a yummy treat and it’s free.

  23. Harriet G. says:

    Looks delicious. Wow!

  24. Bob Kessler Jr says:

    Hope it’s not a real hot day. You may be drinking the ice cream instead of eating it. Too bad they don’t do something like that in the capital (Annapolis) of our state (Maryland).

  25. Ken says:

    I love your ice cream!

  26. alicelynne says:

    Bring it on!!!!

  27. Peggy M says:

    Looks very good and I will be making a smaller version of this. Those of you who are lucky enough to live in that area, enjoy!

  28. leecarr says:

    if I could, I would be there,
    but since I can’t, you won’t see me there.
    however, enjoy it and you can eat my share.

  29. Ken says:

    FREE Turkey Hill ice cream sundae,I will just have to make my own. An 8 hour drive is a little to much!

  30. Jean Marie says:

    Now we’re talking! It’s a lot beter than the jalapeno-tabasco & fish n chips ice creams.

  31. Ginny Miller says:


  32. Janet Pereira says:

    Too far for me to go–but enjoy all who get there.

  33. Carol Triano says:

    Wow, that sounds great. It is a three hour drive from where I live, but I just may take the family on a road trip!
