Salisbury Elementary School, formally known as Harry S. Truman Elementary School, has decided to go forth with their annual ice cream festival. The festival will be held at SES on Saturday June 5, from 12:00 PM-4:00 PM.

Food trucks are to handle the food and ice cream for the festival. Kona Ice, Mon and Mel’s Sweet Scoops Ice Cream Truck, Taco Town and Van Pelt Hot Dog Truck will attend.
Volunteers are able to sign up for different activities at the festival through a link on signupgenis.com. These activities include: speed pitch, arts and crafts, clean up, games, cake walk and flexibility. Volunteers are able to sign up for a two hour increment, 12:00-2:00 or 2:00-4:00. If you are 12 and older, consider volunteering at the festival.
Other activities and events that are going to be at the festival are: a basket raffle, carnival games, a magician and a caricature artist. Also at the festival will be SYA sports reps, the fire departments, Boy Scouts and the Falcon mascot.
PTO president of Salisbury Elementary School, Nicoll Spinner, expressed, “We are extremely excited to have this decade-long community tradition of the Ice Cream Festival returned after the need to cancel last year’s event. The festival is something that many community members old and young look forward to. This event has a tradition of bringing together the community to socialize, have fun, and most importantly enjoy some ice cream. We are looking forward to seeing the community during this wonderful event.”
This festival is a great opportunity for elementary students and the Salisbury community to interact and have fun. Make sure to save the date for this Saturday, June 5.
