Children can celebrate the 4th of July early with free Ice Cream from Mixon Fruit Farms.
Mixon's likes to remind Manatee County children that they are lucky to live in this country. All children, 12 and under, who come to Mixon's on July 1-3, and say the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag will get a free ice cream cone. At the same time, any veteran or active military person that shows an ID will, also, get a free cone.
Mixon's plans to remind children that it is because brave men and women in the military that the country is free.
