Want to get away from the hot weather? Enjoy a cold treat on National Ice Cream Day

Posted: Updated:

During this hot weather it's pretty common to stop at an ice cream shop to cool down and enjoy a treat, especially today, because it's National Ice Cream Day.

 The special day was created in the 80's when President Ronald Reagan enacted July as National Ice Cream Month, and then declared July 18th as the official celebration day.

Local ice cream shop workers say the holiday isn't too big around hear, but they are glad to embrace it.
