After a day in the sun, it was time for a cold treat at the local favourite, Stardust Sweets & Treats. Ice cream and cupcakes are their specialties and guaranteed you’ll feel like a kid again here. Flavours range from licorice to Canadian Moose (a chocolate and peanut butter swirl combo). The ice cream was served in cardboard cars, a fitting way to celebrate the Cruise & Shine show.
We ate our ice cream out on the patio and talked with the owner about her plans to help bring more tourists into Pincher Creek, I realized this is what I love about small towns. It's so easy to talk to people, learn their story and make a connection.
