LOUISVILLE, Ky. —
A Kentucky ice cream shop is doing its part in marking the July 4 holiday. Kids who can recite the Pledge of Allegiance to workers at the Dairy Del on South Shelby Street in Louisville can get a free cone.
This is the sixth year that owner Wayne Madison has offered the deal and he says he’s given thousands of kids under the age of 12 a free cone for their efforts, WHAS reported.
He says it’s all fun.
“Watching the kids, it’s pretty cool. I mean the kids as young as 3 years up and the 3-year-old is trying to recite the pledge and trying to remember it, it’s kind of hard for some of them,” Madison told WHAS.
Madison expects another thousand customers again this year, WHAS reported.
