Staunton's lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer ... and Tastee Freez
Staunton residents won't have to endure another Fourth of July holiday without their beloved Tastee Freez that had sat for years at the western end of Gypsy Hill Park. It will be reopened sometime in April or May, according to the Staunton News Leader.
That's good news to many in the area. When Tastee-Freez closed in 2010, locals were left ice cream-less on those hot days in the park, walking the loop or playing volleyball or participating and watching baseball games. It was especially missed during the annual Fourth of July celebration that brings thousands to the park for the parade, entertainment, vendors, and fireworks. Now the cold treats, burgers, and fries will once again be a part of family outings in Staunton.
