There was a noticeable difference in the number of free kids’ activities this year at the New Castle County Ice Cream Festival at Rockwood Park. Huge bubbles, pony and train rides, a bungee jump trampoline, and a very high zip line were just a few of the activities that fairgoers young and old enjoyed last weekend.

While the giant bubbles were the main attraction, fairy princesses also roamed the fairgrounds, parents enjoyed games of chance with little ones, and loads of food vendors offered a variety of options. Woops! (the macaroon cookie company at Christiana Mall) also offered colorful confections including French macarons, Belgian waffles, and Argentinian alfajores.

This year Barry’s Events partnered with WJBR, and the station broadcast live from the festival fairgrounds all weekend. Station Events Director Chris Leonard said organizers worked hard to keep the focus on young families. “We kept the price of ice cream down so that it was affordable for a family to come out and enjoy, but not break the bank.”

Some festival-goers noticed that UDairy and Woodside Creamery were absent from the festival. But HyPoint, Italian ice and gelato vendors offered several varieties of the icy treat.
