If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to experience a federal holiday at the Santa Monica Pier, I tell ya— Labor Day would have been the day to visit.
Yes, there were large crowds on Labor Day.
But not only did we enjoy the many sights and sounds of one of L.A.’s most iconic landmarks, we had the chance to hang out with our friends from LUIGI’s Italian Ice who were giving away the delicious and refreshing frozen treats (plus tons of other swag)!
This year, LUIGI’S Italian Ice released two new flavors—
Cherry & Lemon Swirl and Blue Raspberry & Lemon Swirl. In celebration of these yummy new taste experiences, LUIGI’s Italian Ice set up activations on both coasts. In New York, the LUIGI’s team recreated the Statue of Liberty using empty LUIGI’s Italian Ice cups.
With these red, white and blue swirl ice cups, Luigi’s saluting our beloved stars and stripes!

Here in Santa Monica,
They recreated the Liberty Bell which was the backdrop for many fun photo ops!
BTW, the Liberty Bell is one of history’s most famous symbols of freedom and justice. Tradition says the Liberty Bell was heard ringing on July 8, 1776 calling out for people to gather and listen to the first public reading of the U.S. Declaration of Independence in Philly!
Along with Luigi’s Italian Ice cup samples,
T-shirts, cup holders and other goodies were handed out to passers-by. My little Toby was so happy with his Blue Raspberry & Lemon Swirl cup that he enjoyed every last drop and even got a blue mustache as a result!
It’s the perfect summer treat!
By the way, did you know LUIGI’S produces 15 tractor-trailer loads of Italian ice daily during summer months!? That’s a lot of Italian Ice but only 120 - 130 calories per cup (made with real fruit juice) Definitely a guilt-free treat that gives us all a chance to #BeMoreSpoontaneous.
Thanks for reading, friends!
