Guests will even get the opportunity to vote for their favorite specialty flavors from major brands like Friendly's and Baskin Robbins.


This year's featured scoops include Friendly’s Rockin’ Poppin Cotton Candy, Edy’s Butter Pecan, Baskin-Robbins Raspberry Cheese Louise, and Yuengling’s Butterbeer. 


Best of all, the Scooper Bowl benefits the Jimmy Fund, an amazing charity that has helped children and adults battle cancer at Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since 1948.

What could be better than a bowl of ice cream to beat cancer?! Be sure to come out to City Hall Plaza, June 6 - 8 to support a great cause and indulge your sweet tooth!
