Minnesota is in the middle of its hottest stretch of weather this year, so there's no better time than now for ice cream, right?

If you head to Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis on Wednesday morning, you can get yourself a scoop free of charge.

That's because Kemps is holding Minneapolis' version of the "10,000 Scoops Challenge," part of a wider ice cream fundraiser in aid of the Salvation Army.

The event will run between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. between 7th and 8th Streets on Nicollet Mall, with Kemps donating $1 to the Salvation Army for every scoop of ice cream it gives out.

Kemps' flavor of choice is its Moose Tracks Ice Cream, with the dairy company saying the event is "family and dog friendly."

As well as the free ice cream, there will also be games and "a few surprise celebrities."

Temperatures in Minneapolis are expected to be in the upper-80s by mid-afternoon Wednesday, before hitting the 90s on Thursday.
