Boice Bros.' Birthday Bash

When Boice Brothers Dairy first opened in Kingston in 1914, Pratt Boice personally delivered his bottled milk on a horse-drawn cart.

Now in its 100th year, the local family-owned company boasts a large dairy plant, dairy store, and ice cream shop—a Kingston favorite. The operation supplies eggs and dairy products to businesses around the Hudson Valley and processes only Hudson Valley Fresh milk, all hormone- and antibiotic-free and sourced from the cows of local farms. Offering 12 delicious flavors of hard and soft ice cream and made-to-order cakes, the Boice Bros. Milk House is the community’s favorite place to indulge.

To celebrate a century of fresh, local dairy products, Boice Bros. Dairy will host its Across the Generations Birthday Bash on July 20. The fun-filled afternoon will dish up live music from local bands such as Saints of Swing and the Percussion Orchestra of Kingston, a children’s lineup of clowns, mimes, and facepainters, and a variety of delicious food and exciting prizes.

And what kind of birthday would it be without a little something sweet? The cherry on top of the cake will be an opportunity to eat the Longest Ice Cream Sundae in the World. Spanning five football fields and weighing over one ton, the Boice Bros. Dairy sundae will make ice cream history.

Bring a spoon and an appetite to the Hudson Valley’s ultimate birthday party, a fundraiser for the Hudson River Maritime Museum and Clearwater Organization’s new education program for fourth graders: The Hudson River Stewards Program. July 20 from noon-4pm at the TR Gallo West Strand Park and Waterfront Promenade in Kingston.
