Pratt ice cream social (ICS)
Date & Time: CANCELLED AGAIN in 2022. (was to be held: Friday, June 3, 2022, 5:30 - 8:30pm)
Location: Pratt School and Tower Hill Park
Unfortunately our annual neighborhood event, the Pratt Ice Cream Social has cancelled again this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic; The last one was held in 2019.
The Tower will not be open either.
As coronoviral load in wastewater rises sharply with the spread of the Omicron BA.2 sub-variant in Minnesota in April (as reported in April 23rd's Minneapolis StarTribune), we are stuck on the ground. Let's plan on next year, and may you have an enjoyable Spring!
Previous Ice Cream Socials
The Pratt Ice Cream Social Fundraiser is one of the most anticipated events of the year! This event is sponsored and co-organized by the Pratt Parent-Teacher Organization with the Prospect Park Association in order to raise funds for Pratt Community School and PPA. What draws people in from throughout the Twin Cities, though, is that the Witch's Hat Water Tower is open! To manage the crowds waiting to ascend the tower, we use a fixed number of cards so that only 80 people can be in the tower at any given time. Organization and staffing of the event is on a volunteer basis.
What to Expect at the Ice Cream Social
A large community presence is a big part of what makes this event special, as well as:
- Ice Cream (of course)
