Ice Cream: What’s Staying Open vs What’s Closing Up For The Winter
As the temperatures start to drop, a number of outdoor staples, including ice cream shops, start to close down for the season. Some choose to remain open (thankfully) so that folks can get their ice cream fix.
Here's a list of what's happening at your local ice cream stands.
Spencer's Ice Cream
Fielder's Choice in Bangor will NOT be closing this season! So ice cream lovers in Bangor will have that as an option.
Down the road, a bit, Gifford's Ice Cream on Broadway in Bangor will also be closing for the season on October 21st. If you're a Giffords fan, that's just about one month for you to get your fill of delicious ice cream.
The Dairy Queen on Broadway will remain open for another couple of months. They're scheduled to close up their shop at some point in mid-December.
The Dairy Queen on Stillwater Ave in Old Town "never closes unless there's a bad snowstorm or something" we were told when we called to check.
It's a good rule of thumb, at this point in the year, that if you're not sure if something is still open, you give a call to double-check. The good news is that while some outdoor activities are closing for the season, others are just getting started!
