Loblolly Creamery honors Dreamland Ballroom with ice cream flavor

The Friends of Dreamland Ballroom Board will visit The Green Corner Store on Wednesday, March 20th at 5 p.m. to taste the “Dreamlandaberry” limited edition ice cream created by Loblolly Creamery in honor of the Dreamland Ballroom.

A portion of the sales of the flavor will be donated to Friends of Dreamland Ballroom. Dreamlandaberry, a creamy concoction of white chocolate and mixed berries, will be available throughout the month of March.

Producer Mark Wilcken will capture the tasting on film for an Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) documentary about the Dreamland Ballroom.

The documentary will intertwine the history of Dreamland through interviews and re-enactments with the current efforts in 2013 to preserve and refurbish the Ballroom. The film will also examine the cultural significance of the Dreamland Ballroom in Arkansas Black history.

You can learn more about the documentary by following us on Facebook.
