Rita's Italian Ice Grand Opening

This Saturday, July 9, the new Rita’s Italian Ice in Plaza Midwood is having its grand opening. The spot has actually been open for several weeks (something I can say with much authority as I’ve become a frequent visitor), but on Saturday they’re celebrating with free regular size ices for everyone, a ribbon cutting, and face painting. Plus, the first one hundred people through the door get free ice for a year.

Not familiar with Rita’s Italian Ice? Well, you should be. Rita’s serves frozen ice in flavors like Key Lime, Swedish Fish, and Mango, as well as frozen custard in flavors like vanilla, coffee, and strawberry. You can order them apart or mix them together in just about any combination. It’s a refreshing treat—and is especially tasty in a hot month like July.

Rita’s Plaza Midwood location is in the shopping center at the corner of Central Avenue and The Plaza, across from the Harris Teeter.
