Join Cindy McMullen on Ground Hog's Day for an ice cream eating contest at Ballister’s Bistro in Rome!

We're hoping for an early Spring and doing all we can to make that happen. So why not do something Spring like? How about eating ice cream? Join Cindy McMullen from 96.1 The Eagle at 11:00 AM on Thursday, February 2nd, Ground Hogs Day, for an ice cream eating contest at Ballister's Bistro, 307 N James St, Rome.

Want to participate? Send a note through Ballister’s Bistro’s Facebook page that demonstrates your love of ice cream or you can drop it off in person at the Bistro. Up to 10 people will be selected.

The contestant who finishes the most Perry’s pints in 5 minutes will win Ballister’s Bottomless Bowl for a year (yes, they serve ice cream year-round!), a $50 Bistro gift certificate, and the title CNY’s Ice Cream Hog. And just for kicks, anyone who comes in Ground Hog’s Day wearing shorts (think Spring), will get a free regular cone!
