ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) --One local business is celebrating national ice cream day. Monkey Joe's children's entertainment center gives out free ice cream to its customers.
After a day full of indoor jumps and slides what better way to cool off than with ice cream? Each customer of the play center had the choice between a couple ice cream flavors today. Monkey Joe’s says they've held specials on national ice cream day for years to celebrate something kids love so much.
"Honestly, kids love ice cream. It's one of those things that you love as a child; you look forward to. Kids light up when they see ice cream. So it’s one of those things that, it's a way for us to bring people in. Especially in the summer, because it's nice and everyone wants to go swimming but this place is really fun too,” said general manager for Monkey Joe’s Jazmyn Koth.
Monkey Joe’s is happy to be one of the local businesses to provide a sweet treat for the youth to enjoy.
