We interrupt for this important announcement: ice cream stand season is upon us.
At least one stand is already open, and others will be opening soon. As we have in previous years, we've put together a list of opening dates for a handful of seasonal ice cream stands around the area.
If you have opening info about other stands, please share!
Snowman in Troy: March 9. Open noon-9 pm (Saturday and Sunday) and 11 am-9 pm Monday-Friday.
Guptill's Coney Express Ice Cream: March 16.
The Ice Cream Man in Greenwich: it's open year round, though it's currently on its winter hours. Starting March 18 it will be open every day 11 am-8:30 pm.
Jumpin' Jack's in Scotia: March 28, "We will start serving promptly at 11a.m. Renovations are nearly complete and we couldn't be happier with the results! We have expanded our Ice cream menu to include some delicious new treats."
Kurver Kreme in Colonie: opening in April, a little later than usual. Two members of the family that owns Kurver passed away recently. From their Facebook page: "My family and I ask for your understanding and patience during this incredibly difficult time. We promise, it will be worth the wait!"
On the Farm in Latham: April 15 (weather permitting).
Moxie's in Wynantskill: no answer at the phone, but it usually opens around Mother's Day in May.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
