Celebrate National Ice Cream Day With Monkey Joe!

Posted on Jul 06, 2016

Did you know there is a National Ice Cream Day? It is true! Ice Cream Day is right around the corner on Sunday, July 17th, and here at Monkey Joe’s Westheimer, we want to celebrate this day! First, let us learn a bit more about how this holiday came about and how we, along with several other Monkey Joe’s locations, will be celebrating! 

Fun Facts About National Ice Cream Day!

  • Unlike many National Days, ice cream day is not just a child’s excuse to eat a sweet treat! President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month, as well as the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day in 1984.
  • Reagan recognized ice cream as a nutritious food that is fun for all ages, and enjoyed by over 90% of the nation’s population.
  • About 10% of all of the milk produced by dairy farmers in the United States is used to make ice cream!

How Is Monkey Joe’s Westheimer Celebrating?

  • At Monkey Joe’s Westheimer, we will be celebrating National Ice Cream Day with tons of fun giveaways!
  • We will also be giving away FREE ice cream while supplies last. Who could say no to that? 

So, make plans to join us at Monkey Joe’s in Westheimer Texas on Sunday July 17th, and every day this summer! At Monkey Joe’s, your kids will have a blast jumping, bouncing, and playing in our giant facility! Remember, if you see Monkey Joe or Monkey Jane walking around, be sure to say hi to them!
