Name that ice cream contest coming to St. Louis Park

During March, you have the opportunity to name a signature ice cream that will be served at the Twentieth Annual Children First Ice Cream Social 2-5 p.m. Sunday, May 19, at Wolfe Park in St. Louis Park.

Sebastian Joe’s will use the winning name as an inspiration in melding ingredients to create the signature ice cream. People of all ages who have a connection to St. Louis Park may participate.

The person who submits the winning name will scoop the first cone at the ice cream social and receive a quart of the signature ice cream.

The contest runs March 1-28. Submit your idea online at or stop by these St. Louis Park locations to register: Citizens Independent Bank, 5000 W. 36th St.; AAA Minneapolis, 5400 Auto Club Way in St. Louis Park; St. Louis Park Recreation Center, 3700 Monterey Drive; or St. Louis Park Public Library, 3240 Library Lane.

The Children First Ice Cream Social offers free Sebastian Joe’s and kosher ice cream, entertainment, exhibits, a moon walk and family activities. Typically, 3,500 ice cream cones are served.

Children First encourages all adults to establish intentional connections with St. Louis Park young people to help them find their positive attributes and passions.
