National Grape Popsicle Day 2020 will be celebrated on the 27th of May in the United States of America. The day calls for the celebration of the upcoming warm weather, sunshine and enjoying the popsicle. Read on to know about the National Grape Popsicle Day significance and how to observe and celebrate the day.

What is National Grape Popsicle Day?

National Grape Popsicle Day is celebrated to remind the times when the first popsicle was prepared. The first popsicle is known to be prepared in the year 1905 in California accidentally. In San Franciso, an 11-year-old boy named Frank Epperson was once standing on his porch while combining water and white powdered flavouring with aims to prepare soda. Frank Epperson left it outside on his porch with a stick pierced in it. The same night the weather became colder and the temperature of the place dropped down and the following morning, the 11-year-old boy discovered that the mixture has frozen to the stirring stick. 

Years later, that is in the year 1922, Epperson brought the summer treat at a fireman's ball event and his treat turned to be a massive success. It is known that in the year 1923, he manufactured and sold this treat-on-a-stick at a park in California. Epperson applied for a patent for his treat-on-a-stick in the year 1924 which he back then called it as ''Epsicle'' ice pop and later renamed the frozen treat as ''Popsicle''.
