Get free ice cream in Dubai this week

You hear the tinkling tune, your heart begins to pound and you race into the house to ask your mum for a pound.

We’re talking about the ice cream vans of our youth, of course, and now we get to relive it – but this time you won’t need to scrounge a single fil.

Dubai Parks and Resorts is giving away as many as 2,000 free ice creams to kids and families over the next week across Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, and we have our ears pricked for the joy-bringing van and its merry chiming.

Until Monday August 13, the roaming ice cream van will be distributing fruit ice lollies and soft ice creams, but if you live in Dubai you’ll have to be quick.

The van only has two more days in Dubai before moving on to Abu Dhabi where it will roam from Tuesday August 7 until Monday August 13, as well as covering ground in Al Ain between Friday August 10 and Saturday August 11.

To check the route and see when the ice cream man will be in your neck of the woods, head to Dubai Parks And Resorts’ Instagram page for more details.

Also, snap a selfie with the ice cream van, use the hashtag #DPRIceCreamTruck and stand the chance to enter a raffle draw to win four tickets to the destination's four theme parks.
