Relax and sip on your Monday Morning Coffee, because we’ve got your next family summer outing planned: Ricky Dean’s.
Ricky Dean’s is St. Joseph’s newest venue for family fun, as a state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor entertainment center. Located in the North Shoppes next to the Holiday Inn Express and across the road from the YMCA, Ricky Dean’s is guaranteed to be the popular choice for families this summer.
Ricky Dean’s is owned by local family Rick and Marcia Gilmore, and their daughter and son-in-law Katie and Joe. Rick was born and raised in St. Joseph and has a passion for making St. Joseph a better place for all. This is one of many Gilmore family adventures in St. Joseph. They opened Joe Town Mini Golf in 2018, Joe Town Speedway in 2019 and also purchased Cool Crest Garden Golf in 2020 and the list continues to grow!
It was Katie and Joe who decided to name Ricky Dean’s after Katie’s father, Ricky Dean Gilmore. Rick’s belief in doing things BIG was the perfect opportunity to name the family’s biggest adventure after him. The family is excited to bring another great entertainment option to St. Joseph and the surrounding areas, and they are so thankful for all who have supported their dreams.
Ricky Dean’s features six main attractions:
- 48 pitch speeds
