Ridgecrest neighbors young and old were treated to a great free evening of music, ice cream and socializing. Ridgecrest Neighborhood Chair and event organizer Patty Hale estimated the attendance at over 1,300.

The  annual event is a Ridgecrest’s way of Celebrating Shoreline within the neighborhood. The evening activities included the consumption of over 40 gallons of ice cream and an hour-long concert by The Around the Sound Community Band.


Joining in the fun were the Pirates of Treasure Island and representatives from Shoreline Police and Fire Departments.

Children worked off the calories they consumed by spending most of the evening playing on 2 huge inflatables. And citizens found a way to give back by donating 177 pounds of non-perishable food to HopeLink.

Serving up all that free ice cream, along with chocolate sauce, whipped cream and cherries - plus lemonade and coffee - took 43 volunteers. 

Working side by side with residents were current and former City Council members, along with a member of the School Board.
