Thanks to the generosity of a Walled Lake resident, the city’s Downtown Development Authority (DDA) will be passing out ice cream novelties from a concessions trailer at its events in the near future.
“We’d like to use it as much as possible, but at a minimum at city and DDA events,” said DDA Executive Director Charlene Long.
Dr. Kevin Lee, a Walled Lake resident and business owner, donated the use of the concession trailer to the DDA. There will be no cost incurred by the DDA except for any cosmetic improvements to the trailer such as graphics or lettering.
The concession trailer will hold ice cream bars, soft-serve ice cream with a variety of dips and toppings, beverages, and more.
“We haven’t determined the menu quite yet,” Long said.
The trailer is not yet open for business, but it will be shortly.
“It’s been sitting for awhile, so we must clean (it) and check all the kitchen equipment, and go from there,” Long said.
DDA Board of Directors Chairman Casey Ambrose, who is also a member of the Walled Lake City Council, cited specific events such as the annual Beach Party and Market Day events where the concession trailer would be handy.
“We hope to generate funds to support the operation for the DDA and other charities,” Ambrose said.
