This weekend, May 4 and 5, Rillito Park will be transformed into an ice cream lover's paradise, and pretty much every kid's dream world. Unlimited ice cream, face painting, obstacle courses, bouncy houses, foam parties, food trucks and brain freezes for everyone.

The Brain Freeze Ice Cream Festival will highlight 21 different flavors of Blue Bell Premium Ice Cream as well as tastings from The Screamery, root beer floats from BJ's Brewhouse and vegan options from Cashew Cow.

The festival is a fundraiser for the Southern Arizona Network for Down Syndrome, SANDS. Brain Freeze festivals work to raise money for local Down Syndrome networks and to raise awareness of organizations who provide jobs, health, financial and educational services to those with mental, physical and emotional disabilities. Read more about their commitment to Down Syndrome awareness and fundraising efforts here.

The event runs Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Ticket pricing is $12 for adults 13 and over, kids four through 12 are $10, and three and under are free. Find more information about the festival on their website and facebook page.
