Test your ice cream-eating skills during the annual Sunny 106.5 Ice Cream Sunday Sept. 16 at Huckleberry Park in Providence. Enjoy free frozen treats provided by Meadow Gold, family-friendly activities and ice cream-eating contests from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Children and adults will have the opportunity to show off their competitive spirit throughout the free event with separate contests for kids at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and adults at 11:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.
Winners will be determined by the person who eats six ice cream bars the quickest or who eats the most ice cream bars within a two-minute time limit.
A partners competition will be held at 1:30 p.m. During this contest, one person will be blindfolded while feeding his or her partner ice cream bars. The team with the most ice cream bars consumed within two minutes wins.
