The sun is shinning bright it’s just the right temperature for a fun festival. I had the opportunity this weekend to attend the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival. It’s a family fun day with local creamers, tons of games, booths, and food. The Ice Cream Festival happens every year at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park located by the “Park Tavern Restaurant”. I had the opportunity to indulge in childhood popsicle, creamy homemade Caribbean ice cream and BBQ. I maybe skinny but yes I sure did eat..eat and eat. So lets dive right into all the fun festivities.
My First Stop Childhood Ice Cream
So I absolutely love ice cream popsicle. I remember walking home from school and the popsicle “man” or ice cream truck would be waiting at the corner for all the little kids. My eyes would light up when I would see the hello kitty, power puff and other cartoon character popsicle. I had to have one! Yes yes I had a flash back.. So I ended up getting a Sponge-Bob since they didn’t have my beloved Power Puff girl. Who many of you guys or girls love these??
Second Stop Face-Painting
SO this festival just brought back tons of childhood memories for me. Yes I was that kid who want the pretty little princess face paint and never got it. Whelp He went nothing! These amazing ladies painted my face with glitter drops. Yes, I thought I was smoking hot!!
Did Someone Say BBQ??
So I couldn’t resist the sweet tangy BBQ smell from the local Williamson Bros BBQ Restaurant. I ordered the rid sandwich. Which came with 3 large pieces of ribs and 2 hamburger buns and a Large sweet tea! Yep now this is good eating.. Check them out!
It’s not a festival if you don’t meet random people and things.. So I met a lemon and Knight proposed to me. HA! to funny..
Homemade Caribbean Ice Cream
So I stood in line for almost 45 minutes to taste this homemade Caribbean ice cream. I had to have it because I remember my grandmother making homemade ice-cream for us. So I knew this was going to be good. I reluctantly ordered the butter pecan flavor. Oh man was this ice cream like heaven, so creamy and rich it was well worth the wait!
And yes I couldn’t help but dance to the african & reggae music that was being played!
My Festival Outfit
This blog wouldn’t be complete If I didn’t share my look for the day.
Printed High-waisted Pants (Similar). These pants were purchased from TJmaxx for $19.99. Ladies these pats are out everywhere. I have been wanting a pair of these for the summer and I finally found the right ones. I love the print and that they are high-waisted. These are very long but I don’t mind it adds to the bohemian look I was going for.
Dark Blue Blouse: I snagged this sleeves blouse from Burlington Coat Factory for $9.99. I love tops like this because they can be dressed up or down. They are very relaxed and cool for the summer.
Glowing Rhinestone Sandals: So Rack Room Shoes was having a BOGO 1/2 off shoe sale. I saw these sandals for $9.99 so I bought two and got this pair for only $5.99. Ladies this shoe was originally $39.99. Hurry up and get yours they are still onside!!! What a steal!!
Liz Claiborne Side Satchel Purse (Similar): I have had this purse for a while it was a gift from my sister from Jcpenny. Side satchel purses can be purchased from just about anywhere. Hurry up and go find yourself one there’s tons of them on sale!
