Free Blue Bell Ice Cream, Live Entertainment at Plant City Photo Archives

PLANT CITY, Fla. – June 20, 2012 –

In celebration of the “Journey Stories” Smithsonian exhibition at Plant City Photo Archives & History Center (PCPA), Blue Bell Ice Cream is hosting an old fashioned ice cream social Friday, June 29, from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. at PCPA.  The public is invited to enjoy free Blue Bell Ice Cream, music and a bit of nostalgia.

Guests will feel like they are back in the 1940s, listening to the vocal harmonies of a barbershop quartet, while cooling off with the good old fashioned taste of Blue Bell Ice Cream.  Before or after enjoying their ice cream treats, visitors can tour the Journey Stories exhibit chronicling American history. From colonial immigration to westward expansion to more modern city life, they will see photos and historical artifacts, and hear first-hand accounts from travelers, via “Journey Stories.”

The Ice Cream Social, as well as admission to Journey Stories, is all free. Exhibit is open through July 7, and hours are Sunday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.   PCPA is located at 106 South Evers Street, downtown Plant City.
