Hot Ticket for Cool Treats

Tuesday, June 2, 2020
As the mercury creeps toward 90 degrees Tuesday afternoon, the vehicles creep around Dairy Castle, three sides of the parking lot and onto Indianapolis Road. As if a hot June day wouldn't have been enough to attract crowds, Tuesday also marked the Greencastle ice cream stand's second "opening day" of 2020. While open only to drive-through customers for the time being, Dairy Castle had been closed since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements. However, with summer fast approaching and the state slowly reopening for business, the return of Dairy Castle seems to serve as a sign that maybe -- just maybe -- things are getting back to normal.
