Celebrate Seabrook’s newest pocket park by helping us build the world’s largest ice cream sundae on what could very well be the world’s largest picnic table in Lily Walk Park! Hosted by the all of your favorite Seabrook retailers, each business will be showing their support of Seabrook’s brand new neighborhood, Lily Walk. The event is schedule for this Saturday, August 13 at 6:30pm.
No one really knows where the first ice cream sundae was enjoyed (a number of people across the United States have claimed to be its inventor), but we do know that there are few things so delicious on a summer’s day than an ice cream sundae.
Check out these fun ice cream sundae facts:
“The oldest-known written evidence of a sundae is from Ithaca, NY. The local Soda Fountain – Platt & Colt ran a newspaper ad for an Ice Cream specialty “Cherry Sunday,” in the Ithaca Daily Journal dated April 5, 1892.
It is largely agreed upon that the ice cream sundae was created in the late 1800’s as an enjoyable Sunday treat to replace the popular ice cream soda which was banned due to “Blue Laws” prohibiting its consumption on Sundays in many areas of the United States.
The most expensive ice cream sundae (also a Guinness World Record) is the Serendipity Golden Opulence Sundae, served only at the Serendipity 3 restaurant in New York City. It costs $1000 and requires reservations at least 48 hours in advance.”
