Excerpt: “At the South of the James Market at Forest Hill Park, Mark Abernathy from Little Jimmy’s Italian Ice of Carytown served the masses. It was the busiest day all season, and by noon, Abernathy had already sold more than 125 ices.
Sydnee Voigt, who is visiting her grandchildren from Brazil, was among his customers. Pina colada and watermelon ices went to the kids. “We’re just going to spend Labor Day together as a family,” Voigt said.
As for Abernathy, his plan after work: Head down to his boat on the Chesapeake Bay.”
