Cool Treats

I scream, you scream, in the heat of July we can all scream for a good cause to eat ice cream (and frozen custard, of course). Head to St. Louis Union Station (1820 Market Street; 314-648-6639 or www.glennon.org) to support SSM Cardinal-Glennon's Children's Medical Center at its Scoops of Fun Family Carnival. This all-you-can-eat ice-cream buffet from 2 to 5 p.m. features the coolest treats from Ben & Jerry's, Serendipity, Oberweis, the Fountain on Locust, Sia's Frozen Ice and Andy's Frozen Custard. Dance off the sugar rush by rocking out to local band Lunar Levitation, or take a spin on the amusement park rides (though you might want to hold off if you're prone to ice-cream motion sickness). There's also balloon art, button-making and face painting for the kids. Admission is $8 for children and $20 for adults, but a $50 "sprinkle pass" is good for two adults and two children. For more information call 314-678-6639 or contact www.glennon.org.
