All about ice cream (July 18)

July 14, 2009

Hope you’re enjoying the All-Star hullabaloo! I’ve been surprised how much my friends and family in the rest of the country are tuned in to St. Louis this week — when we visited my North Dakota hometown for a few days, I saw more televised action from Busch Stadium than I’d typically see here in St. Louis! I’ve also heard of quite a few people traveling into town for the lead-up festivities but viewing the game from the comfort of a couch or bar stool instead of the stadium. My kind of tourists!

Today’s event highlights another great American summer tradition: ice cream. On Saturday (July 18), the Missouri History Museum is all about frozen creamy goodness, in honor of National Ice Cream Day on the third Sunday in July. There’s a full schedule of events — crafts, live music, balloon sculptures, storytelling, dancing and free treats from North Star — online at the museum’s homepage. The events run from noon to 4 p.m.; the museum itself is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. That means you can take a leisurely stroll through the exhibit about the 1904 World’s Fair and find out whether it mentions the fabled ice cream cones that were served there.
