MAKE YOUR OWN: In Berryville.

My old pal Ginger Shiras writes with eating news from Berryville:

BERRYVILLE — In the early days of the Berryville Ice Cream Social, volunteers churned homemade ice cream for sale but as the event grew, that became impossible. This weekend, 25 years later, the homemade ice cream is back in a limited role.

There’s a homemade ice cream contest with a $250 prize to be judged at 5 p.m. Saturday and immediately following that, the entries will be sold for $2 a bowl before the 5:30 p.m. talent show, according to Ginger Oaks of the sponsoring Berryville Chamber of commerce.

Craft booths will open at 10 a.m. Friday with an all church sing at 6 p.m.

Saturday, a 5K run departs the square at 8 a.m. and booths will open about the time the runners return to the square. The day will feature a barbeque contest with $250 prize judged at 1 p.m., Kiwanis bratwurst dinners, meatballs on a stick, home made root beer, chocolate strawberries and “chocolate gravy for breakfast,” Oaks says.

There will be a water slide, pony rides, a petting zoo, a dunking tank and a climbing wall. Free children’s games will be 12:30 - 3 p.m.

It’s all on the square except the Berryville Kiwanis Club’s fishing derby from 10 - noon Saturday at George Pond for children four through 12. The state Game and Fish Commission has agreed to stock the pond with more than 300 one-pound catfish.
