Celebrate National Donut Day

A list of the 10 local places you should definitely spend National Donut Day

It seems as if every new day brings a new subject to celebrate. National Margarita Day, National Ice Cream Day, National Coffee Day…the list goes on. However, June 1st is the day of donuts, and we shall celebrate. 

Wondering how this day came about? So were we. According to the Salvation Army website, the Salvation Army’s “Donut Lassies” served donuts to soldiers in World War I. We now continue to celebrate their time and service! If you are looking for a local way to get your donut craving in today (and let’s be honest…if there was ever an excuse to eat a donut, it’s today) then simply skim this list and get in your car!
