National Ice Cream Day is Sunday; however, Simply Natural Creamery is getting a head start on celebrating.
They hosted a festival Saturday in Greene County.
This is the third year the company has hosted the festival. They host it every year on the third Saturday of July.
Last year, the creamery had eight thousand visitors.
Despite the heat, thousands still came out to enjoy the event this year.
They had mini train rides, pony rides, car shows, vendors, tractor displays and of course, ice cream.
Michael Fulcher, the marketing director for the event, shared his favorite part of the festival with 9 On Your Side.
“For me it’s seeing the community come together, the vendors, the commercial vendors all working together and then the community just enjoying a good family day,” he said.
Fultcher says every year the festival continues to grow.
