Hall of Scoops, 14 South Greeley Avenue, in Chappaqua and the Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival (CCBF) are hosting an afternoon of kids’ activities to launch a new custom-crafted ice cream flavor, Purple Pig Tales, to celebrate and raise awareness of the Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival.
Free activities will include air-brushed tattoos by Kiwi Country Day Camp, balloon-twisting, purple “pigtail” extensions by Cathy’s Hair Room, and a book reading by award-winning children’s book author Jean Van Leeuwen at 3pm. Hall of Scoops will unveil its newest ice cream flavor, Purple Pig Tales – purple and white-swirled cotton-candy ice cream with rainbow confetti – which was created with the permission of and guidance from Oliver and Amanda Pig author Jean Van Leeuwen. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Purple Pig Tales ice cream will benefit CCBF’s literacy partner, JCY-Westchester Community Partners.
All activities are free. Ice cream is available for purchase.
