The Brain Freeze Ice Cream Festival is bringing buckets of Blue Bell Ice Cream to Rillito Park from noon – 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 4 – Sunday, May 5.

This one will have everyone screaming for ice cream with 21 flavors to choose from and as many scoops as you can handle. There’s plenty of gifted fun, too, with free games, face painting, and a foam party.

It’s fun for the entire family but make sure to leave your pets at home.

Proceeds from this year’s festival will support the Southern Arizona Network for Down Syndrome.

Tickets are $12 for anyone 13 years and older, $10 for children between the ages of 4-12, and anyone younger than that can eat scoops of ice cream for free.

Rillito Park is located at 4502 N. First Ave. For more information, visit
