Shop expects 1,000 ice cream lovers Saturday


A popular Stevens Point ice cream shop opens for the season Saturday and a big crowd of ice cream lovers is expected.

More than 1,000 people are predicted to line up outside of Belts' Soft Serve when it opens at 11 a.m.

"Places like Punxsutawney or Sun Prairie have ground hogs that let people know when spring will be coming. And we've been fortunate enough to kind of become that herald for spring that when people see Belts' is opening they know that spring's right around the corner," manager Cole Ricine said.

In past, people have camped out outside of the shop the night before to be among the first to buy the ice cream.
