(WBNG) -- Locals around the Southern Tier celebrated National Ice Cream Day by enjoying sweet treats from nearby ice cream shops.
One of the biggest decisions made Sunday was whether customers wanted rainbow or chocolate sprinkles on their afternoon treat.
Some ice cream shops that people stopped at included the Schoolhouse Creamery in West Windsor and Humdinger's in Binghamton. The Schoolhouse Creamery held specials to celebrate the day. They offered deals with soft served ice cream and even handed out free "Pup Sundaes" to the furry friends that joined in on the fun.
"National Ice Cream Day is so special because it's something that everybody likes on a hot sunny day and to come up, especially the Schoolhouse Creamery, it's an old schoolhouse and it kind of gives you a nice little atmosphere," said Schoolhouse Creamery Co-Owner Susan Colpitts.
Customers varied from adults to children, proving that the classic summer treat does not have an age limit. The sunny weather Sunday made it a good day for anyone to cool off with a cone or a sundae.
