Bright Ice, an ice cream shop that opened its first location in St. Petersburg in 2019, now has three locations in the Tampa Bay area. And it is celebrating its Pinellas Park spot, located at 5591 Park Blvd. N, with a ribbon cutting and grand opening July 22.

Bright Ice makes specialty ice cream flavors in-house, roasting fruit, juicing lemons and baking cookies to create concoctions like Strawberry Pretzel Pie, Espresso with Kahlua and Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip. In February, they moved their kitchen to Pinellas Park, needing more space than the St. Petersburg spot offered, and soft-opened a new scoop shop there. In May, they opened a third location at the Tampa Marriott at 505 Water St.

The Pinellas Park location will hold its grand opening and ribbon cutting July 22 starting at 11 a.m.
