I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM: The possibilities are endless with a chocolate dipping sauce.

With a yoga session, fitness routines, and traditional Chinese exercises, you can have your ice cream and eat it too, guilt-free. This annual celebration not only honors America’s favorite frozen dessert, but it also promotes physical wellness and hosts activities on how to lead a balanced lifestyle. To kick off the day, festival goers will march through the park for the 3rd Annual Leah Dortch Fight Cancer Walk, a 5K that’s good for both the heart and the mind. Afterward, enjoy an array of activities such as double-dutch routines, hula-hoop competitions, and a frisbee toss. Watch chefs from Atlanta’s Young Chefs Institute demonstrate how to make art with food, and if you’re really hungry, enter the ice cream eating competition. Check out this frosty festival with friends and family of all ages before it melts away.

Free.11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sat., July 28. Piedmont Park, 10th St. N.E. and Charles Allen Dr. www.atlantaicecreamfestival.com.
