In celebration of National Ice Cream Month, Visit Bucks County hit the streets of Washington, D.C. to promote Bucks County’s summer attractions, family-friendly lodging and sweet treat from the Bucks County Ice Cream Trail.
The official tourism promotion agency of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, offered passersby 2,000 bars of free ice cream handcrafted by Uncle Dave’s Homemade Ice Cream on Wednesday, July 10.
A custom-wrapped ice cream truck bearing the Ice Cream Trail design was stationed in Franklin Square Park, a busy public space with food trucks downtown, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. VBC staff had the opportunity to talk one-on-one with D.C. locals and distribute the Spring/Summer issue of our food and beverage magazine, Well Seasoned, and copies of the Destination Guide. Flavors included Red Raspberry & Dark Chocolate, Vanilla Beanie & Dark Chocolate, Belgian Chocolate & Peanut Butter and Caramel Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate.
Those that stopped by had a chance to win tickets to Bucks County attractions, $60 Amtrak gift cards, Visit Bucks County ice cream scoopers and more by spinning a prize wheel. Additional prizes included nearly 100 admissions and discounts to various Bucks County attractions: Moravian Pottery & Tile Works, Bucks County River Country, Doylestown Salt Cave, Conquering Cuisine and an overnight stay at The Washington House Hotel.
The Bucks County Ice Cream Trail includes 9 creameries with 14 locations, and takes tourists on an adventure from our river towns to the countryside. Be sure to travel the Bucks County Ice Cream Trail for yourself this summer!
