MEMPHIS — Who doesn’t love ice cream on a blistering, hot summer day?
The Children’s Museum of Memphis is celebrating National Ice Cream Day July 15 from 1-3 p.m.
Enjoy a Blue Bell ice cream sundae with all of your favorite toppings. The Blue Bell Country Girl is coming all of the way from Texas to serve ice cream fans of all ages a delicious treat.
“Don’t miss the unveiling of Blue Bell’s newest flavor,” a spokesman said.
Face painting, crafts and door prizes will add to the fun and make for an extra sweet and special Ice Cream Day. The cost is $3 for members and $15 for non-members. Museum admission is included.
Blue Bell is partnering with CMOM in honor of National Ice Cream Day, as well as National Ice Cream Month. Each July, to celebrate National Ice Cream Month, the Texas-based company introduces a new flavor. Visitors will have a chance to sample this tasty new treat from Blue Bell.
The Country Girl, known as the official Blue Bell ambassador, is traveling to Memphis from the company’s Brenham, Texas, headquarters to be part of “Sundae Sunday.” She enjoys meeting fans of all ages and serving “the best ice cream in the country.”
In 1984 President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by many of the Nation’s population.
In the proclamation, Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”
