Good news & bad news: The bad news is that we are making some changes. The good news is that we are making some changes!

CHANGES ARE IMMEDIATE -- "Wacky Weekends" are dead & probably were dead on arrival. Papa Robb was wacko for that idea to begin with. But - some good comes from some bad. In auto racing you sometimes slow down to speed up. Well, we are going backwards to go forward - Read on -------------

FESTIVAL FRIDAYS return. It is that simple. Our guests will vary such as Tripp The Clown, Balloon Artists, Face Painting, etc. Events such as Fiesta Night, Vending Specials, Topping Bars, Games , Craft Nights, DJ Music, etc will all return. Our next Vending event is this Friday & Saturday Nights. We will also feature our new friends with their Taco Truck every Friday -- plus several other little surprises.

SATURDAYS -- Music & Open Mic will continue so join us every Saturday with host Chris "Big Hat Larry". And bring your talent & jin the fun.

SUNDAYS will return as Family Fun Game Day. Yard games, card games & board games. Most important, Sundays are the day for family & friends to simply relax & visit with one another while enjoying a super cool tropical treat.

OTHER NEWS --  Hey, our new Papa Robb's Club is growing. This basically a communication club where we use texting as a better way of reaching you with news & specials. Sort of a less is more deal. We appreciate your interest & support.

Our weekend hours have changed & we are now open until 10:00 pm on Friday & Saturday nights. This at your request so come on out.

As you all know we have had weather challenges this year - as we have the last two  years. Thank you so much for your support when we have weather problems such as a flooded parking lot & playground. We do offer our treats "To Go" plus you can use Door Dash & Uber Eats for ordering & delivery of Papa Robb's treats.

Last - DO NOT forget that we have a catering department. Call 704/ 425-5552  or email us at  for details when planning your next party.

We are open at last & the weather was super. Now we should all expect some more cool days , but by & large most of winter is gone & spring is roaring in. So ---- make your plans to visit us soon.

This blog is about the importance of communication & about our new PAPA ROBBS CLUB. The "Cub" is really an improvement over our current newsletter group, but with more parts to it. The big deal is that by joining the club (it is free & very easy to do) you can get more news with less hassle - sort of a less is more deal. Plus you will be eligible
for specials, discounts & some prizes - both big & small.

While texting news will be important we will NOT be sending you all kinds of text messages - probably about one a week. Plus a blog about every 7 - 10 days & fewer Facebook posts. The goal is to simplify your lives & ours but still get important event news to you on a usable & friendly basis.

You can sign up at our store in person with a paper form or via a scan bar code or on line. A link is at the end of this blog - just click & sign up! It is as easy as that.

Don't forget that we also have an events calendar on our web site,

There are many changes at Papa Robbs this year -  some small, some big. In our previous blogs (end of last year & first two of this year ) we've mentioned our new Papa Robbs Club, changes in our weekends, our new door prize/surprise package, & our daily schedule/events. We are very excited about our NEW PLAYGROUND!

That's right, if it would just stop raining our new playground could arrive & be installed. Now this new playground looks almost just like the old one, but there are a few changes & the platform is a little larger. But everybody seemed to like what we had so we just kept the same overall look.

Our old playground was just that - old. Harder to keep it as clean as we wanted & to keep repairing what was needed. Happy to report that the playground is now at a local church & we hope those kids get a lot of happy use from it.

PAPA ON THE GO -- our mobile sales were busier than ever last year & this year could be even busier. Our first event will be mid March at the Quarter Midget race track in Salisbury & we are always excited to watch these kids race their cars & see old friends & make new ones. Mid April brings the annual Special Olympics. We are very honored to be a small part of this wonderful event & we will bring more  news about that in April.

We are already booking birthday parties, school & church fund raisers, & other special events as far ahead as October so please contact us as early as possible about your party or function. We do have more than one option for you -- inside or outside with a variety of product choices so again, please call as early as possible.

Communications, communications, communications - our very important subject next blog.

Rest In Peace Sam Bass
