The celebration will include live music throughout the day. A children’s booth with face-painting, arts and crafts, ice cream and candy will serve the kids, and a Brown Swiss dairy cow named “Bessie Ross” will be on hand and udderly fantastic.

Gifts and toys relating to Ben Franklin and ice cream will be raffled off with proceeds going to a charity. A special “Birthday Cake Bisque” ice cream has been created, and hot waffles with slabs of fresh ice cream will be served from the ice cream cart. There will also be savory foods and adult drinks inspired by the flavors of the Franklin Fountain from neighboring restaurant The Gaslight. Of course, The Franklin Fountain will offer the full line of soda fountain drinks, ice cream concoctions and home-made candies.
