Back to School Ice Cream Social
The Ice Cream Social is generally held the evening before the first day of school at Altoona's 10th Street Park from 5:30-7:00 p.m. The entire community is invited to enjoy ice cream cones as a celebration of the upcoming start of a new school year. Contributing to the festivities are the Altoona High School Band, the Altoona Police & Fire Department, and a variety of local family-friendly non-profit organizations. In addition, an Eau Claire Transit bus and driver are always on hand for "tours" and last minute questions. Guest scoopers include: school district administration and board members, city administration and council members, members of the fire/police departments and 4K site directors and teachers.
