Atlanta Ice Cream FestivalThird Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival – Saturday, July 27, 11:00am-6:00pm, Piedmont Park.   Enjoy everybody’s favorite cool treat while learning about health and fitness.   That’s right – ice cream and fitness at the same event!  Attendees will also enjoy a variety of entertainment including music, exercise demonstrations, an ice cream eating competition, and a kids’ comedy corner.  The event is free and open to the public.
