Dairy ConeWhen the weather warms in the spring, and upon their return in September, students take the short walk down the hill to an old (circa 1960), locally owned mom-and-pop ice cream stand, Dairy Cone. It’s open daily from early March until early autumn, and, not only does it offer 43 flavors of old-fashioned ice cream, it also has a selection of frozen yogurt (a Colby student favorite, according to co-owner Rachel Paradis), slushes, sundaes, shakes, and more. Paradis and her husband and co-owner Don Paradis make all their own ice cream, and they say they’re always open to new flavor suggestions.
