Le Mars Ice Cream Days!
The Le Mars Area Chamber of Commerce Ice Cream Days Committee would like to inform you of our 2020 plans for a vendor event. The festival will run Wednesday, June 17 to Sunday, June 21, 2020 with Saturday, June 20 the day that vendors are featured in downtown Le Mars. This year we are consolidating many of the ICD festival events and activities to our downtown. This past year the City of Le Mars completely renovated the Olson Cultural Event Center into a green space with wonderful seating, gazebos, flower beds, etc. Three streets surrounding the event center will be closed off allowing all vendor participants to be in this location. We hope you will choose to be a part of the 2020 Ice Cream Days Festival. This year, the parade will be Saturday, June 20. The parade will once again line up on Stadium Drive, near the Le Mars Community High School. The parade will travel along Central Avenue starting at 8th Street South and continuing to 6th Street North, then East on 6th Street to the Fairgrounds.
Chamber members may register their parade entry online
