KEYSTONE, S.D. (AP) - Mount Rushmore National Memorial is hosting a viewing party of the annual Rose Parade on New Year’s Day.

The parade will be shown at the park’s cafe. The company that manages the park’s gift shop and restaurant will give out free scoops of the famous Thomas Jefferson ice cream, which is from the original recipe that the Founding Father served at the White House.

The theme of the parade in Pasadena, California, is “Find Your Adventure.” The parade plans to shine light on the centennial celebration of the National Park Service. Coincidentally, 2016 is also the 75th anniversary of the completion of Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

Park superintendent Cheryl Schreier says rangers will be ready to photograph visitors who’d like to get their picture posted on the park’s Facebook page.
