Main Street Sweets Offers Free Ice Cream to Celebrate First Day of Summer

Main Street Sweets owner Kenny Schnabel expects to give away 3,000 one-scoop cones.

in Westhampton Beach is celebrating the first day of summer on Wednesday by offering a free one-scoop, Ben & Jerry's ice cream cone to every customer between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.

"It's our first, first day of summer party," said owner Kenny Schnabel.

He decided to give away free cones not only as a fun way to kick off the summer season, he said, but also as a thank you to customers.

"They have supported us for 19 years," said Schnabel, who says he expects to give away between 3,000 and 4,000 cones, and possibly more with 90-degree temperatures forecast for Wednesday. 

"It's supposed to be pretty darn hot," Schnabel said.

To ensure that the line moves in and out of the shop, he said he will have seven employees scooping.

"The line should move quickly since we won't be handling any money," said Schnabel, who believes that he will go through more chocolate chip cookie dough on Wednesday than any of the other 29 flavors he has in stock.

"It is our biggest seller," he said.
