Our favorite holiday is swiftly approaching! National Ice Cream Day 2017 is Sunday, July 16th and we’re inviting you to celebrate with us.

Here’s how we’re going to do it:

Step 1: Start Early!19221907_1614214501935595_56981744038142707_o
Like the night before early. Get a jump on the festivities with our final MIDNIGHT SCOOPS of the summer on Saturday, July 15th! We’re bringing back the fun summer starlit lights and counting down until Midnight.

Step 2: Compete in our Ice Cream Eating Contest!
What?! Yep! You read that right. We’re holding an ice cream eating contest. There will be 3 age divisions, 10 and under, 11-15, and 16 and over. The top 3 competitors in each division will be awarded a trophy! Plus, the ice cream for the contest is free.

The contest will begin at 3:00 pm, starting with the 10 and under, continuing with the 11-15, and finishing with the 16 and older.

You can sign up beginning on Saturday, July 8th at Scoops. For each sign up, there is a $5 reservation fee that will be refunded at the contest.

Step 3: Keep celebrating with a BOGO!
Receive a buy one, get one free coupon for your next visit when you come in on Sunday, July 15th! What can we say? We like to keep the party going. Limit one per family.
