The Garden Hills Garden Club will hold its 40th annual Ice Cream Social on Sunday, Sept. 25, from noon to 5 p.m. The event will be held at the Garden Hills Park and Pool complex at the intersection of Pinetree Drive and Rumson Road.
This festival offers plenty of fun for the whole family and is free to the public with proceeds raised via ticket sales for on-site children’s activities. These activities feature classics such as arts ‘n’ crafts, pony rides, a jumpy, “hair and nails”, a dunk tank, an artists market and much more. New this year, food will be provided by the Pup truck and Tex’s Tacos in addition to our traditional bake and ice cream sale. Local bands will provide live entertainment for everyone’s enjoyment.
Proceeds from the event directly benefit the Garden Hills community with past beneficiaries including the Atlanta Fire Department, Station 21; the Atlanta Police Department, Zone 2; Breakthrough Atlanta and the Buckhead Branch of the Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library.
“We are excited to be able to continue the tradition of the Garden Hills Ice Cream Social into its 40th year,” said Emily Wingfield, event co-chair. “It is always a great time to catch up with old friends, cool off with a yummy treat and let the kids enjoy themselves. After this long, hot summer the dunk tank is sounding better and better!”
