MayLynn’s Creamery

MayLynn’s Creamery’s original location is still a big hit in Lynchburg.

MayLynn’s Creamery opened in the Boonsboro Shopping Center in June 2013.  Since then it has become a favorite spot for ice cream in the Lynchburg area.  Working out of a food truck they are able to offer a rich, creamy, soft-serve ice cream that has an old fashioned feel.  There is plenty of seating to enjoy your ice cream treat, socialize with your friends and enjoy the warm summer nights.

Now the owners, Josh and Becky Kirk, are proud to announce the opening of a storefront in downtown Lynchburg, VA.  Located at 1016 Jefferson Street, they are excited to be a part of the downtown revitalization.

Like their location in Boonsboro the downtown store will offer soft serve ice cream, locally sourced smoothies, edible cookie dough ice cream and rolled ice cream.  These treats are served as cones or cups, dipped–ice cream dipped in a hard candy shell–as a float, mixed with your topping of choice into a mixer, stacked like a sundae but with all of the ingredients stacked or layered, milk shakes and double shake flavors and the ever popular and unique rolled ice cream–a thin layer of ice cream spread into a thin layer and rolled up.

Flavors, toppings, dips and floats are combined into yummy treats just for you and as you like them!  Choose from 30 “everyday toppers.”  Or, be a bit more adventurous and choose from an additional 9 “special toppers.”  Stackers come in cheesecake, brownie, bacon-bacon or lickety split, too name a few.  The shakes are sold in small, medium or large.  Flavors include: the all-time favorites of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.  But, why not try a caramel, mint, peach, cherry or cookies and cream.  Looking for more flavor?  Choose a double shake flavor such as chocolate banana, Oreo hot fudge or mint Oreo.

MayLynn’s Creamery has added an Event Trailer that visits festivals, Food Truck Thursday in Miller Park, various events in the Lynchburg area or private parties.  All of the same delicious ice cream brought to you.

The food truck is located at 4925 Boonsboro Road.  It is open Monday through Saturday 12 until 10 and Sunday 3 until 10.  The new downtown location is found at 1016 Jefferson Street.  The brick and mortar store is open Monday through Thursday between 12 until 9, Friday and Saturday 12 until 10 and Sunday 2 until 9.  Visit www.maylynnscreamery.com for more information.

The downtown location is within walking distance to The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast.  We are happy to assist you with walking directions, just ask.

Decorate your bike in lights and head to Percival’s Island

Do you like to ride your bike?  Do you enjoy riding in a unique setting?  Are you up for a fun evening of a bit of exercise, community togetherness, nature and fun?  Then the Glow Ride on Percival’s Island is just for you.

On Friday, August 24, 2018 you will pedal under a full moon.  Meeting at Percival’s Island, you will ride 3 miles down the trail, turn around and ride back, for a total ride of 6 miles.  Dress up.  Wear bright colors, funny hats, unique shirts, have fun with it.  Decorate your bike with glow sticks and lights.  What about streamers?  Flowers?  Bows?  Bells and horns?  Again, have fun with it.  A prize will be awarded for the most festive bike, so let your imagination run wild!

The ride starts at 8:00 pm and lasts until 9:00 pm.  It is open to riders of all ages and abilities.  All bikes MUST be decorated in lights of some sort to participate.  The Glow Ride is free but you must register at www.lynchburgparkand rec.com.  If you have any questions call 434.455.5858.

For guests staying at the B & B, Percival’s Island is located at the far end of downtown Lynchburg, VA from The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast, about 1.25 miles.  You can ride your decorated bike from the B & B.  Just remember, it’s a steep ride or climb back up Cabell Street from the trail.  Main Street to Rivermont Avenue to D Street is a flatter route that may be a better choice.  See you at the Glow Ride!

Movies in the park; great family fun.

Are you a Star Wars fan?  Do you enjoy movies shown outdoors?  Want to experience a Star Wars movie with other die-hard fans?  Then you will want to attend the Lynchburg Park and Rec showing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi when it is shown at Riverside Park on Friday, August 17, 2018 at 8:00 pm.

This is the third season that Lynchburg Parks and Rec has hosted “Movies in the Park.”  Each summer they become more and more popular.  Gather your family, friends, co-workers and others.  Bring your chairs, blankets, picnic supper or snacks and enjoy a great movie.  You may want to take advantage of the local food trucks and downtown restaurants that will be selling their delicious food and drinks.  Usually 5-7 food trucks or restaurants are available to choose from.  Food Trucks will begin serving 2 hours before the movie starts.  Vendors and sponsors will have information and booths for you to explore.  Or, you can get to Riverside Park early, snag your spot and then explore the park.  Exhibits, trails and more await you.

Free parking is available in three parking areas near the screen and seating areas.  Parking assistants will direct you to the parking areas.  All parking is first-come, first served.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi runs for 2 hours and 32 minutes.  In this movie Rey develops her newly found abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers.  Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares for battle with the first order.

If you are staying with us at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast we can prepare a “to go” box supper if you’d like.  Just be sure to mention this to us at least 48 hours prior to your arrival.  Additional fees apply.  Enjoy the movie!
