Daddy's Dairy, which has been in Stoughton for about 2.5 years, is celebrating the grand opening of its third location, this one in Brockton, near the Easton line at Michael's Plaza on Belmont Street (next to Owen O'Leary's).
The new location opened earlier in October. The grand opening celebration takes place this Saturday, Oct. 20. The first 300 people get a free kiddie cone (chocolate, vanilla or twist soft serve).
In addition to the Stoughton location on Washington St., Daddy's Dairy is also in Randolph (the original location).
