This years Elk Fest will feature "Hit & Miss" homemade ice cream. The name is based on the fact that the 5 gallon containers of ice cream will be turned by a 1936, 1 1/2 HP John Deere Hit & Miss gas engine. Come listen to it "hit" and "miss" as it churns the ice cream mixture; then enjoy a refreshing bowl of home made ice cream.
