Now in its fourth year of sweet success, Idaho Falls magazine's Scoop Jam! ice cream festival is returning to Snake River Landing on Saturday, July 14. Presented by Premier Insurance, the event has quickly grown into a major community celebration with ticket sales benefitting the Snake River Roaring Youth Jam.
Ice cream vendors include Orange Leaf, Cold Stone Creamery, Farr's Ice Cream, Reeds Dairy, Kiwi Loco, Graeters. Food vendors include The Great Bambino (ask for a taste of their gelato), Famous Dave's and That One Place.
The brain-freezing fiesta will run from noon to 4 p.m. Attendees will not only get free ice cream, but also complimentary fun jumps and live music. Anyone with room left in his or her belly can also participate in the eating contests: rib eating sponsored by Dickey's Barbeque Pit & 105.5 The Hawk; pie eating sponsored by Shari's Restaurant & KLCE; and ice cream eating contest sponsored by MotorFist & Z103.
Along with Premier Insurance, additional sponsors for 2012 include Tim Urling's Allstate Insurance, Dr. Randy Smith & Dr. Mark Marlowe Pediatric Dentistry, Falls Printing, Fantastic Sams Hair Salons, Idaho Central Credit Union, Idaho Falls Arts Council, John Blumhorst Construction, Mountain America Credit Union, Museum of Idaho, Microserv and Snake River Landing.
