Ahead of the carnival coming to Douglas on July 18th one lucky primary school pupil is set to scoop a fantastic prize courtesy of Davison’s Ice Cream.

For the second year in a row the island’s leading ice cream producer has teamed up with the event’s organisers Douglas Development Partnership and Douglas Borough Council to challenge the Island’s primary school children to come up with a flavour for the official Douglas Carnival ice cream.

The ‘cone-ival’ competition will be judged by the Mayor of Douglas, Councillor Sara Cain, and every child in the class from the winning school will receive a free ice cream when the Davison’s Ice Cream van comes to call.

Director Ian Davison said: ‘Davison’s Manx Ice Cream is pleased to be working again this year with Douglas Development Partnership and the Island’s primary schools for the “Design a Douglas Carnival Ice Cream” competition.

‘With more than 1000 entries last year’s challenge was a great success, so we’re looking forward to seeing – and tasting – the imaginative flavours and designs this year has in store.’

Town centre manager Michelle O’Malley said: ‘Thanks to Davison’s Ice Cream we’re really licking this year’s carnival into shape.’
