Dreams Ice Cream to host 10th anniversary celebration on Saturday, May 27

Dream Ice Cream in Glenside will be hosting a 10th anniversary celebration on Saturday, May 27 from 5:00-8:00pm.

Owner Lamar Smith says the event will include a cookout with hot dogs, hamburgers, drinks, and, of course, ice cream.

“I’ll probably give everyone a free scoop to show our appreciation. I’ll also give everyone 10 points for our rewards program,” he said. “I serve a great community.”

33 East Glenside Avenue’s offerings have expanded with time, including homemade cakes and pies since 2021, and a banana pudding shake that earned a mention on Axios.com titled Food finds: The best banana pudding shake in the Philly area:

It’s not every day a banana pudding shake makes you cry.

Yes, but: The one at Dreams Ice Cream in Glenside reminded me of the banana pudding that my late grandmother Virginia made for family gatherings and the weeklong summer sleepovers at our grandparents’ house.

With the nostalgic date approaching, Lamar shared some photos from the early years…

…as well as a few satisfied customers.

The anniversary complements a recent visit by FOX29 News, which highlighted Dreams’ longtime owner and his menu.

The ice cream shop’s hours are Monday – Thursday 3:00 – 9:00pm, and Friday – Sunday 3:00pm – 10:00pm.
