As you know, I’m a fan of ice cream. I’m also a big fan of festivals. So, you can imagine my excitement at the thought of attending a festival dedicated to ice cream. The Philadelphia Ice Cream Festival at the Reading Terminal Market this past Saturday did not disappoint.
I had a blast eating homemade ice cream, ice cream cupcakes, rootbeer floats, sorbet and more ice cream. I will never, ever say I have had my fill of ice cream, but on this day, I came close.
The festival itself was very enjoyable which included several ice cream eating contests. Even without the ice cream festival the Reading Terminal Market is a must-see if you’re ever in Philadelphia. This is a food lover’s heaven. There are eclectic eateries, bakeries, dairy operations, produce stands, seafood markets, butchers, and flower shops. I kind of wish we had something like it back in Pleasant Valley.
