Whippy Dip & Creamland Open to Big Crowds

Posted: Updated:


Erie's seasonal ice cream shops, Whippy Dip and Creamland both opened on Tuesday. Weather in the 70s and kids eating ice cream in shorts reminded everyone that winter is not forever, not even in Erie. 

Hundreds stopped by the Whippy Dip on W. 26th St, some saying it's the perfect way to welcome the new season. 

"Celebrating spring, finally. And I can't think of a better way to do it than a cone at Whippy Dip," said Loretta Jewell of Erie.

"We'll be here as  often as we can for sure. These are the days we throw the diet out the window and come enjoy the summer," said Diana Perez, at Whippy Dip with her two kids. 

Another loved ice cream shop, Creamland in Millcreek, saw hundreds of customers per hour during the after-work rush. 

The shop's parking lot was full to capacity as customers stood in the sun, socializing and enjoying their  treats. Even pets joined in on guzzling some ice cream. 


"This is an Erie staple. If you don't make Creamland on April 1st, I mean, come on, you're not an Erieite," said Josh Perrington, of Millcreek. 

April 1st also marked opening day for Sara's, the popular spot at Presque Isle.
