Classic Ice Cream Trucks

WITH ONLY 30 DAYS of SUMMER LEFT DON'T WASTE A MINUTE

WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM
Many of our Blog visitors will recall a Summertime when dusk brought out the ice cream truck, a welcomed sight after a long day of playing outdoors. It was a neighborhood event bringing kids and parents out of the house to enjoy a frosty treat. We were called by the sound of bells and jingles each remembers by heart.

Of course there were also evening trips to the local roadside ice cream shop. Read about them here.
