The 2019 Ice Cream Crawl will be held June 22, 2019 from 1-4 pm with ten different vendors participating. This event is a Lafayette Rotary fundraising project with proceeds going to fund the Tippecanoe Co. Imagination Library, a program started by Dolly Parton. “Crawlers” can go to any of the shops to get a free sample of ice cream or frozen custard. There are shops in both Lafayette and West Lafayette. The locations are: Igloo Frozen Custard (2 locations), The Original Frozen Custard, Budges Drive In, Culver’s, Silver Dipper (2 locations), Sweet Revolution Bake Shop, and Cold Stone Creamery (2 locations). At each location Crawlers present their passport to be stamped. Those who are able to visit at least five shops are eligible to win a prize basket of ice cream items. Some Crawlers may even be able to get to all ten locations within the three-hour time window.
