BUCKHANNON — For locals, the sure sign that spring is almost here comes with the illuminated Dairy Queen sign on Main Street. On March 1, owner Kay Ware opened the beloved ice cream stop for the warm months to come.
Dozens of people can already be seen enjoying ice cream on the sidewalks of Main Street—even in the chilly weather. Dairy Queen is now open for its 67th season, and locals are lining up to welcome the business back to town.
They offer all of the classics: cones, sundaes, blizzards and milkshakes, all with countless flavors to choose from. The Blizzard of the Month for March is Mint Oreo, offering a bright green treat for St. Patrick’s Day!
Ware serves all customers at the window with a smiling face. She explained, “We’re excited for another good season this year. We are open for our regular business hours!” Dairy Queen is open from 11 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday.
