Guests of all ages are encouraged to indulge in something sweet at View’s 13th Annual Ice Cream Social on Saturday, July 30 from 11 a.m. through 3 p.m. at Point Park in the center of Old Forge across from the Old Forge Hardware Store.
The event allows folks to browse a unique collection of bowls and other ceramic pieces created by local and regional potters, and then select ice cream and toppings of their choice. Pottery prices range from $10 to $25, which includes ice cream and toppings. Guests who do not purchase pottery, may enjoy an ice cream sundae for $5. Participants will also have the opportunity to view pottery demonstrations on site to witness firsthand how these beautiful, one-of-a-kind creations are crafted.
The annual event benefits View, the arts center in Old Forge, and has become a favorite destination for an afternoon ice cream treat with friends and family. This event is sponsored in part by Stewart’s. In the chance of rain, the event will be held at the Old Forge Fire Hall located at 116 Fulton Street in Old Forge.
