It's all about the Ice Cream! Celebrate with ice cream treats, picnics, parades and more. Here’s the scoop… Le Mars, Iowa - "The Ice Cream Capital of the World". Officially designated as such in 1994, Le Mars has been the home to Wells Enterprises Inc. , makers of Blue Bunny brand ice cream, since the company’s founding by Fred H. Wells, Jr., in 1913. Today, more ice cream is produced in Le Mars, Iowa, by a single company than in any other city in the world! While we love to promote ice cream, we have so much more to offer! So, whether you are staying awhile or just passing through, we invite you to experience the 'local flavor'
