“Nothing says summer celebration like ice cream,” said Bob Zuckerman, executive director of Downtown Westfield Corp. “Downtown Westfield is an ice cream destination with over 10 different locations to enjoy ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, vegan ice cream, smoothies and shakes. With hundreds of flavors and thousands of combinations, it would take the whole summer to get through all of them.”
He encouraged members of the community to share their favorite flavors and combinations, as well as photos of themselves, their kids and even dogs enjoying the sweet treats.
“We hope to see people out enjoying their ice cream this Fourth of July weekend, strolling on the pedestrian-open Quimby Street and enjoying their meals and cocktails outdoors,” Zuckerman said.
