Just like the Bat Signal summons Batman to action, the "Open" sign at Hibbard's Original Frozen Custard paged patrons to come out for the first cone or shake of the season on Monday. Just minutes after the orange light turned on - and amidst the menu boards being nailed into the wall - customers were lined up outside of Lewiston's original sweet shop.
Hibbard's is open from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. seven days a week. Hours will extend after the school year ends and summer begins.
The custard stand is located at 105 Portage Road (corner of Center Street; across from Academy Park). For more information, visit http://www.hibbardscustard.com or call 716-754-4218. (Photos by Joshua Maloni)
A staple at Hibbard's, Robin Haskell has been serving cones for more than 20 years.
