The Le Mars Area Chamber of Commerce Ice Cream Days Committee would like to inform you of our 2021 plans for a vendor event. The festival will run Wednesday, June 16 to Saturday, June 19, 2021 with Saturday, June 19 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. 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 2021 Ice Cream Days Festival. This year, the parade will be Saturday, June 19. 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.
An opportunity to get outdoors and celebrate our community. Let’s all dig in and make this year’s Ice Cream Days a great event! Step up and out for Le Mars!Deadline for Parade, Food, & Art Vendors is May 31st.

Meant to be performed as the premiere episode of a nineteen-forties live radio broadcast, complete with foley artistry and on-stage stand-up microphones, Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent is a parody packed with puns, play on words, oodles of self-referential absurdity (and Beatles references?) In the tradition of Firesign Theater, Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent combines slapstick, screwball humor, commercial spoofs and a murder mystery for a stylish and ridiculous tour de force comedy.Director: Pete LaskieProducer: Danna Schuster and Margaret BrittonCast: Jake Revolver: Joe Ouradnik, Narrator: Bob Hill, Angel/Lt.
