Snowy day in Erie greets return of Rita’s Italian Ice

It’s snowing outside, kind of windy and hovering right around the freezing mark.

Italian ice anyone?

Some folks in the Erie area apparently thought it sounded like a good idea.
Rita’s Italian Ice, located at 1406 W. Gore Road just off Peach Street, ended its winter hiatus today as snowy weather returned to the Erie area.

Turns out the allure of frozen custard, Italian ice and milkshakes is more powerful than the snowy leftovers that Old Man Winter has been serving.

“We’ve been busy,” said an employee who answered the phone.
Customers had been waiting since late September when the shop closed for the season.

Rita’s is open until 9 p.m.
