PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Some folks in center city Philadelphia were beating the stress of the heat today with free ice cream, manicures, and massages.

The Dove Bar ice cream company rolled in a special truck with a see-through section.  Free ice cream bars were being given out at 16th and Chestnut Streets, and the public could step into the air-conditioned portion of the truck to get a free massage or manicure.

Philadelphia  is one of 10 cities getting the ice cream promotion geared toward adults.
