LeMars Gets 10 More "Ice Cream Cones"
(LeMars) -- More ice cream cones are coming to LeMars. The LeMars Chamber of Commerce and Main Street Association now say the city will be able to show off 42 of the fiberglass ice cream cones that are uniquely painted and seen at various locations around town. Mary Reynolds says the ten latest ice cream cones will be placed in front of businesses, schools and even parks.
Patrick Kiel of Shelton, Nebraska is the designer and sculptor of the ice cream cones. He says it takes about a week to create one cone and he describes the process.
Besides LeMars, Kiel has worked on many different projects that identify a community's image. He has created terriers, horses, and even airplanes.
Perhaps Iowa Hawkeye fans may recognize another project by Kiel when they visit the Iowa City and Coralville areas.
Mary Reynolds believes the latest ten ice cream cones will be on display sometime in the spring.
