The second annual King of Pops Field Day returns to the Masquerade Music Park this Sunday, October 21. The beloved local popsicle maker is again throwing a carnivalesque free party with games, popsicle eating contests, a few bands, and food trucks (in case you decide that you can't live on pops alone). Proceeds from the day will benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia.

In the last couple of years, young entrepreneurs from all over have started producing handcrafted ice pops using organic and local ingredients in an increasingly sophisticated range of tastes.
