Diablo and Sons Pastry Chef Rachel Wysong will be making some whimsical flavors of soft serve ice cream.  I hear she is working on her new “burnt honey” flavor to pair with Diablo’s fire grill menu offerings so it will be the perfect dessert ending to your meal.  We are super excited to taste all the twists she makes.

Pedals and (Ice Cream) Pints @ Jump (Jack's Urban Meeting Place)
Jun 15 @ 10:30 am – 3:00 pm
Pedals and (Ice Cream) Pints @ Jump (Jack's Urban Meeting Place)

No pints of beer, only pints of ice cream will be enjoyed on these 30-minute trips around downtown Boise with your family! No alcohol will be allowed. This will be a family and kid friendly event. Join us for a group pedaling event from 10:30AM to 3PM the day of our Grand Tasting event at Jump. This is a separate event from the Grand Tasting, but it would be super convenient for those already at Jump for the tasting. Make sure to schedule your pedaling at a time outside of your Grand Tasting session time. Kids are welcome but need to be tall enough to ride an adult bike and contribute some to the pedaling portion of the event. We’ll provide some ice cream to taste, family appropriate music to enjoy, and help make sure we all have a blast. Rides will load and unload at Jump near their display tractors at the corner of 9th Ave and W Broad Street.  [Full 2019 Ice Cream Festival Calendar] [Places to Stay in Boise
