Summer may be coming to an end in other parts of the country, but not in Miami. High temperatures are holding steady, and the Magic City needs some help cooling off. Luckily, the Good Humor company is bringing the Welcome to Joyhood tour to Bayfront Park today to hand out free ice cream with the help of hella-hot Devious Maids star Roselyn Sanchez.
Good Humor — the company credited with inventing ice cream on a stick — is taking its truck on a nationwide tour, and its inaugural visit to Miami comes with an extra-special perk: the addition of Sanchez as the Honorary Good Humor Woman. She will join the rest of the Good Humor Joy Squad in distributing the company’s signature frozen treats and, in a very official capacity, be at the ready for selfie requests.
Though Sanchez is no doubt the cherry on top, there's more in store for lovers of frosty desserts and soapy dramas. Good Humor also promises giveaways and the chance to explore (and take Insta-worthy photos with) its Good Humor Truck of the Future, which comes souped up with music and plasma screens for the ultimate ice-cream party on wheels.
You can scream for ice cream or for the opportunity to meet the smoldering Sanchez. Either way, you need to cool off, and the price (free) is right.
Can’t make it to Bayfront Park? Good Humor might be rolling into your neighborhood. After today's launch, the Good Humor Joy Squad will continue to tour Miami through September 18 to delight overheated denizens via free frozen treats and other surprises.
The Miami launch of the Good Humor Welcome to Joyhood tour takes place at Bayfront Park today, Thursday, August 25, from noon to 3 p.m. To track the path of the Good Humor team in real time, follow it on Foursquare or tweet @GoodHumor.
