To honor Bloomsday founder and race director Don Kardong, who is retiring after the 2019 race, the Lilac Bloomsday Association has teamed up with Sweet Peaks Ice Cream to create a specialty ice cream for him.

Darkness and Chaos, a huckleberry chocolate swirl ice cream, is available now at Sweet Peaks’ Spokane location and will be available through May.

Runners and ice cream fans alike will receive a discount on the specialty ice cream today, and Kardong will scoop ice cream from noon-1 p.m. today at Sweet Peaks, 415 W. Main Ave.

The name of the ice cream is inspired by a quotation from Kardong: “Without ice cream, there would be darkness and chaos.”
