From STAFF REPORTS
Scoop Fest is returning to Tennessee’s Oldest Town on Saturday, August 11 from 4 to 7 p.m. The event will offer a variety of over 30 flavors of ice cream to sample throughout Main Street shops and eateries along with family-friendly activities for all. Tastings include flavors that range from traditional to unexpectedly delicious and everything in between!
Ice cream tastings aren’t all you can experience; a variety of activities will also be available. The McKinney Center will be hosting their Popsicle Pop In Open House, where you can join in on hands-on activities, arts and crafts, demonstrations and even hip-hop auditions. While you’re downtown, look for their booth and grab a flyer, take it up to the Popsicle Pop In Open House at the McKinney Center and receive a free popsicle while experiencing all the art classes they have to offer for their upcoming semester.
The Jonesborough Elementary and Middle Schools will also be offering some fun literacy activities, a book drive and a book give-away for children of all ages to promote their “Tell a Story, Read a Story, Share a Story” Initiative.
Ticket packs are available in increments of 15 tickets for $10.00. Each tasting will require one ticket. It is recommended to purchase tickets online as there will be a limited amount of tickets available.
