Ice Cream Days in Le Mars Starts Today!

Today the weather in Le Mars is supposed to be sunny with a high of 79 degrees.  Perfect for the opening of Ice Cream Days!  I'm sure you've heard that Le Mars is the Ice Cream Capital of the world.  Here are two reasons Le Mars totally wins.  Wells is the world's largest family-owned and run ice cream manufacturer. Plus the company is the world's largest manufacturer of ice cream in one location. It's all in Le Mars, baby!  Which explains why an estimated 10,000 people will attend the festival in this small northwest Iowa town.  Still not enough for you?  They plan on having 3-on-3 basketball games. You know you love those.  One last enticement: Wells Blue Bunny is the official ice cream of Sea World.  Splash.

As a LeMars Public High School graduate, I must say that this post is very "cool". Pun intended!
