Visitors to the festival, co-organised by Ruposhi Bangla Hotel and Igloo, would be able to consume unlimited quantities of ice cream in return for the entry fee of Tk 500 James P McDonald, general manager of the hotel.
Igloo, the market leader, will take the opportunity to introduce nine brand new flavours — chocolate and orange, mango yoghurt, tiramisu, cappuccino, praline and cream, hazelnut chocolate, peanut butter cream, vanilla almond cream, strawberry cheesecake — on each day of the festival.
“We will offer low fat ice cream for the diabetic patients as well,” said Salahuddin Taimur, national sales manager of Igloo.
Banglalink Priyojon subscribers will get a 10 percent discount on the entry coupons, while a package will be provided for a family of four, he said. The fair will remain open from 11am to 10pm.
“There will be live music everyday to add to the merriment of the occasion. A raffle draw, too, would take place on the inaugural and final day, where exciting prizes are to be won,” McDonald said.
The festival will be inaugurated by Asaduzzaman Noor, a lawmaker and cultural personality, said Mahfuzur Rahman, resident man ager of Ruposhi Bangla Hotel.
“We will try to bring a festive mood in the fair for ice cream lovers.”
