It’s official. The new Kona Ice shaved ice stand in Carney will hold a Grand Opening and Ribbon-Cutting event on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
The event will be held at 10 a.m. at the corner of Joppa Road and Magledt Road in Carney.
The site was once the location of My-T-Fine Snowballs, but Joni and Claude Elmore have renovated the shop in recent months, and they say that the new Kona Ice will be bringing back many of the old My-T-Fine flavors. Patrons will even be able to get a scoop of ice cream at the bottom of their cups.
Last year, Baltimore County Councilman David Marks introduced legislation that would provide some certainty for snowball stand operators like the Elmores, allowing stands by right in certain zones and with some restrictions.
“This property has been eyed by developers for many years, and I applaud the Elmores for investing to improve this iconic structure,” Councilman Marks commented.
There has been a snowball stand at this location for more than six decades.
