In 1994, Killis Melton told his son-in-law: “I’m always up for a chili cook-off, but what Texas needs in the summer is an ice cream crank-off!”  And the rest is history!  In 2014, over three thousand people enjoyed the tastes of homemade ice cream, great music, magic shows, and fun kids’ activities. The Crank-Off has been featured on The Food Network and in American Profile Magazine in addition to the Dallas Morning News and local papers and magazines. The Killis Melton’s Ice Cream Crank Off is held each year in June.

Proceeds go to the McKinney Rotary Club Foundation's All Abilities Playground Project and Chestnut Square Historic Village.
