The 2019 Garstang Ice Cream festival is almost here and we are looking forward to another excellent day in and around Garstang.
last year (2018) saw the introduction of the Garstang Ice Cream Festival following inspiration from the USA where Ice Cream day is the 3rd Sunday in July.
National Ice Cream Day is dedicated to appreciating ice cream. In 1984, Senator Walter Dee Huddleston of Kentucky initiated a joint resolution to declare July as the National Ice Cream Month and July 15 as National Ice Cream Day. On July 9, 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July 1984 as the National Ice Cream Month and July 15, 1984 as the National Ice Cream Day. This holiday is now celebrated on the third Sunday of July.
The inaugural event was a huge success and the organising team have been working hard to overcome difficulties that arose last year and this year (2019) is set to be even better.
Car parking has been improved and capacity increased. The number of Ice Cream vendors has been increased and the area now spans Garstang up to the Millennium Green.
Have a fantastic day out on Sunday 21st July 2019 at Garstang Ice Cream Festival.
