Can you believe it’s June? Here in New England, ice cream is a thing all year round, but especially as the weather warms up, a frozen treat feels even more delicious. Today or over the next few days, plan to stop in to City Hall Plaza for the 37th Annual Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl — the nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival. Proceeds benefit patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber, so this is an indulgence you can feel really good about!
The festival runs on June 4th, 5th, and 6th, from noon to 8pm. Event day ticket prices are $10 for children and $15 for adults (under 2 free) — a 3-day pass is $20. (Tickets can be bought online here, or purchased at the entrance to the event.) Ice cream will be served by Baskin Robbins, Ben & Jerry’s, Breyers, Edy’s, Friendly’s, and Hood, along with Greater Boston fan favorites like Bart’s Ice Cream, Blake’s Ice Cream, Vice Cream, Beckon Ice Cream, and Yasso, among others.
For adults, [email protected] on June 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. features unlimited ice cream under the big tent and two adult beverages provided by Harpoon Brewery and local wineries. The area is open to adults ages 21 and up with a separate $30 admission ticket.
So much fun, and for such a good cause!
