Velvet Ice Cream Festival on Memorial Day weekend

Even though it’s technically still spring, Memorial Day weekend just seems to be the launch of summer.    And what better way to celebrate than with ice cream?     Velvet Ice Cream in Utica (just 30 minutes away from the inn) has a great ice cream festival on the long weekend every year.   It features fun activities for all ages, with entertainment on the stages, a motorcycle show, music, magic, and what else but ICE CREAM.     Admission is free.   For more information and to see a schedule of events go to the festival website.

Velvet Ice Cream is open May to October, with an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, a viewing window to the factory where you can watch them make ice cream, and a milling and ice cream museum on the premises.

There are lots of other fun activities to enjoy near to the inn on the long weekend and we still have a few rooms open,  so give us a call if you’d like to make a mini-vacation out of your trip.   740-599-6107

And if your path takes you to the ice cream festival this weekend, be sure to enjoy a Raspberry Fudge Cordial cone for me!
