One lucky primary school class in the Isle of Man is set to scoop a fantastic prize if they can come up with a new ice cream flavour.
The hunt is on to find the right combination for the official ice cream of Douglas Carnival in July.
For the second year running, event organisers Douglas Development Partnership and Douglas Borough Council have teamed up with Davison’s Ice Cream for the challenge.
The ‘cone-ival’ competition will be judged by the Mayor of Douglas, Councillor Sara Hackman, and every child in the class from the winning school will receive a free ice cream when the ice cream van comes to call.
Director Ian Davison said: ‘Davison’s Manx Ice Cream is pleased to be working again this year with Douglas Development Partnership and the island’s primary schools for the ‘Design a Douglas Carnival Ice Cream’ competition.
‘With more than 1,000 entries last year’s challenge was a great success, so we’re looking forward to seeing – and tasting – the imaginative flavours and designs this year has in store.’
Town centre manager Michelle O’Malley said: ‘Thanks to Davison’s Ice Cream we’re really licking this year’s carnival into shape.’
Returning for the second year, the carnival promises entertainment through the evening of Saturday, July 18.
From 7pm throngs of floats, bands, dance groups, decorated vehicles, along with many other participants and performers, will be bringing the sights and sounds of the carnival to town as they take part in a parade from the north end of Queens Promenade to the end of Loch Promenade.
