Ice cream social
An ice cream social, also known as an ice cream party, is a planned event, the primary focus of which is ice cream served to the guests. It is often a neighborhood event or welcoming party, normally held during the summer.
Ice cream socials are a traditional gathering dating back to the 18th century in America. They were frequently organized by churches, fashioned after the "ice cream gardens" that were common in society at the time.
