After a summer afternoon of baseball, who can say no to ice cream? Today the Florida Marlins host the second annual Ice Cream Festival. Edys Ice Cream will provide the good stuff, while Marlins players and managers serve as the festivals celebrity scoopers.
There will be a bounce house for the little ones, raffles, and, of course, tons of ice cream. The fest will begin after the Marlins game against the San Francisco Giants. Proceeds will benefit the ALS Recovery Fund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating public awareness about Lou Gehrigs disease, the fatal illness that took the life of the legendary baseball player. After the game, you can meet Marlins players and lend support to a good cause. Game tickets run between $20 to $35; purchase festival tickets for $10 by calling the Marlins at 305-623-6497 or by visiting www.ALSRecovery.org.
