Check out New York City's ice cream carnival.

SOHO, Manhattan - Step right up to an ice cream carnival-themed pop-up in SoHo.

The Oddfellows Carnival at Chefs Club Counter is now open for business.

There are circus performers, like jugglers and stilt walkers, who greet you. And of course a carnival is not complete without animals. So there are rows of vintage toy cymbal-clapping monkeys on the wall, and there's even a vintage-inspired photo booth.

But the main event is the ice cream, with three features. Feast your eyes on the Cotton Candy Creamsicle, a vanilla and tangerine soft serve cone wrapped in orange cotton candy.

There's the Concession Stand, made with a caramel popcorn soft serve with a salted caramel injection that's topped with salted caramel popcorn and chocolate pearls.

Finally, there's the Pink Dip, a raspberry sherbet soft serve that's dipped in pink chocolate with freeze dried raspberries, Pop Rocks and gold dust.

Each cone will run you $9, and a word to the wise -- eating the ice cream is tricky, and all of the treats are Instagram-worthy.

It's fun for kids of all ages, but be warned, the space is small, and there's really no place to sit down to polish off your treat.

You can find the ice cream carnival right next to Chefs Club Counter at 62 Spring Street. It's open Monday to Sunday from 12:00pm to 10:00pm through the summer.
