I scream, you scream, everyone's screaming for ice cream!

Sunday was National Ice Cream Day, while July has been known as National Ice Cream Month.

The hot and steamy weather Sunday was perfect for some cool ice cream.

“The weather definitely has a big impact on our business, and with it being so intermittently rainy recently, business has been kind of slow, but it’s been pretty busy today,” said Haley Wright, an employee of Baskin-Robbins. “We’re really grateful for it.”

President Ronald Reagan declared July 17 as National Ice Cream Day to help promote the US dairy industry.
