My family went to this last year to help build the World Record Winning Ice Cream Sundae. We all had a great time, and my kids still talk about how they were part of something in the Guinness Book.
If you’re looking for something to do with kids this weekend, this is something they will never forget!
Went to the burger event you mentioned.
The event was terrific. Great food, booze and music. But the parking sucked. It took me over 40 minutes to find a spot. It was so bad that I almost gave up looking and left .
The resort is great looking and has tremendous facilities.
Hopefully those who go for this Treat event don’t have parking problems.
