Finally, a festival that caters to all my late-night sweet treat lovers (like myself).

Ice cream is the greatest dessert of all time. It's not even a debate. The only negative thing about ice cream is that there is an inevitable end to your bowl or cone.

But what if there wasn't?

The Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl is back and sweeter than ever for its 40th year.

Taking place at Patriot Place in Foxborough, Massachusetts, this is an all-you-can-eat ice cream festival, according to the Gillette stadium website.

Oh, did I mention this is the largest festival of its kind in the nation? Because it is.

According to the website, the New England tradition has raised more than $7.3 million to support cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This year, in addition to unlimited ice cream, Patriot Place will have more sweet treats, live entertainment, and extra fun. Plus, Patriot Place is loaded with other fun things, sites to see, restaurants, and more.

In 2022, 44 different flavors were served. For 2023, a laundry list of flavors from various ice cream makers are already on the list: a variety from Ben and Jerry's, Bliss, Bart's, Buon! Per Te, The Farmers Cow, Gifford's, Hood, Edy's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, Haagen-Dazs, Oreo from Oreo Frozen Desserts, Lactaid, and two flavors from Shake Shack, according to the Scooper Bowl website.

This epic and sweet ice cream festival will be two full days (12:00 pm - 8:00 pm) on Friday, June 2, and Saturday, June 3.

Tickets for the event can be purchased here.
