It's a sure tell sign of summer in Bar Harbor when a popular ice cream shop opens for the season!

One of the best ice cream shops on the planet will be opening for the season this Saturday!  Mt. Desert Island Ice Cream in Bar Harbor just posted on their Facebook page that their Main Street location will open at 12 noon!

This is the same ice cream shop that President Obama and his family stopped at back in 2010 when they visited MDI for a vacation.

Looks like they'll be open seven days a week, with initial hours of 1-9PM Sunday through  Thursday, and 12 noon till 10PM Fridays and Saturdays.  For now, just the Main Street location will be open, the second Bar Harbor location at Firefly Lane will remain closed for now.  Mt. Desert Ice Cream also has a location in Portland.
