July is National Ice Cream Month, and it has been a long-standing tradition for families to swing by the Mars Wrigley ice cream factory in Burr Ridge on weekdays!
Unfortunately, as with many of our regular traditions, that is not happening this year. The ice cream cooler in the lobby has been replaced by temperature screening stations. The challenge of managing lines of people and social distancing is also a main concern.
The good news is that Mars Wrigley and their employees enjoy serving the community and spreading joy with their ice cream, so if all goes to plan they will be back with free ice cream bars in 2021!
