Who doesn’t love free ice cream?

Summer heat getting you down? Then we have some good news, there’s a van currently zipping about Dubai handing out free ice cream to help residents fight off the warmer temperatures.

The roaming van is distributing fruit ice lollies and soft ice creams to children and families in select neighbourhoods around Dubai until August 6, when it will be moving on to Abu Dhabi and then Al Ain.

The initiative is run by Dubai Parks and Resorts (that’s the people behind the Motiongate, Bollywood Parks and LegoLand theme parks) and you can hit up their Facebook and Instagram pages to check whether the van will be in your neighbourhood so you can head out and score a free cone.

Happen to live in The Villas, Muhaisnah or Oud Al Mteena? Then you’re in luck, the van will be making its way to your areas today. Snap a selfie with the frosty vehicle and use the hashtag #DPRIceCreamTruck to stand a chance to win four tickets to Dubai Parks and Resorts’ epic theme parks.
