I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream! In the words of Eddie Murphy, “remember when the ice cream man used to come to town when you were little, and no matter what you were doing you would stop and lose your f*cking mind?” – if you haven’t seen his Ice Cream sketch then lookey here – well apparently that continues into adulthood. Don’t correct me, you know it’s true!
Lucky for you, Bristol has some exceptional offerings that’ll have you doing a happy dance, and part of what makes #SummerInBristol so epic! Here’s where to find them…
Disclaimer: I was invited by Visit Bristol to be part of the #SummerInBristol campaign. As part of the campaign, I received a Media Pass to experience the highlights of the city, including a scoop of Gelato from Swoon – but no payment was exchanged for this article or any related posts.
