Summer has officially come to an end, which means that Gengenbacher's Shaved Ice Shack's season is winding down as well. But before they lock up for the winter, they're offering customers a FREE shaved ice.

According to the Gengenbacher's Shaved Ice Facebook page, they need your help to use up the last of their inventory from this season. So on October 4, you can pick up a free shaved ice in whatever flavor you like. All they ask in return is that you make a free will donation to the Allison Holbrook Scholarship Fund.

100% of the money collected will benefit the scholarship. This special runs from 4:00 until 7:00 pm, after which the Shack will be officially closed for the 2018 season.

I am all about the pina colada shaved ice (my fav), and I know my girls will be wanting their rainbow flavored as well. We made a few stops there this summer and it's still warm enough out to enjoy one more trip. Gengenbacher's Shaved Ice Shack is located in the parking lot of the Quincy K-Mart (36th and Broadway).
