Summertime and ice cream have long gone hand in hand as a way to bring family and friends together to enjoy a lazy summer afternoon.
This weekend, the Annual Riverside Old Fashion Ice Cream Social returns to the Ohio River on Sunday, July 9th.
“Riverside’s Annual Ice Cream Social will be a great time for young and old alike,” says Councilwoman Cindi Fowler (D-14). “This is a chance for the family to enjoy a little of America’s past, listen to some good music and enjoy something everyone loves, ice cream.”

Joining Fowler as sponsors of the event are Council members Rick Blackwell (D-12), Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) and President David Yates (D-25).
There will be food, fun and entertainment for everyone including, the Celtic Pig and Lexie Lu’s food trucks, children’s activities; including a miniature train ride, farm animal petting zoo, pony rides and ice cream eating contest starting at 3:00pm sponsored by Ehrler’s Ice Cream.
The event features live music from the Josh Logan Band at 1:00pm, 2:00pm and 3:30pm and a magic show at 2:30pm and 3:00pm
