The timing could not be better. With temperatures soaring into the high 80s this week, turning New York into a true melting pot, the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism took to the streets, dispensing free ice cream.
Trucks adorned with scenes of white sand, blue waters and the iconic sea turtle appeared at various locations in Manhattan, from Herald Square to Grand Central, Times Square to Washington Square Park, and Union Square to South Street Seaport.
The trucks' locations could be followed on an interactive map
The trucks also were promoting a contest to win a free trip to the Cayman Islands.
Anyone could enter the contest by sharing their #CaymankindNYC ice cream experience Facebook
