Three busses of kids to be exact, all from Camp Caribou, a sports camp for boys located in Winslow. When the hungry campers got ready to place their ice cream orders, the line that formed surpassed the Treworgy's family gift shop and barn, ending at the fence surrounding their petting zoo.
"I didn't even know it was National Ice Cream Day," said Treadwell. "Nevaeh [my great granddaughter] just got out of the pool so we thought it was a good time to come for an ice cream."
Here in Maine, the holiday dedicated to the frozen treat just so happened to also coincide with Open Farm Day, a family-friendly, day-long event where farmers open their gates to offer the public the chance to learn about agriculture.
"We knew it was Open Farm Day so we came out [to Treworgy's] because we thought it was a good thing to do on a Sunday," explained Sandy Feher of North Carolina. "[National Ice Cream Day] was a surprise to me, but it's perfect. I got chocolate lover's ice cream which has bits of chocolate pieces in it."
"I got Maine Moose Tracks," said Treadwell. "The chocolate chips are filled with raspberry."
But the best flavor of all to enjoy on National Ice Cream Day, according to Treadwell's great granddaughter, is a much, much simpler concoction.
"This one," Nevaeh Treadwell, said holding up her half eaten cone. "Vanilla."
