National Ice Cream Day is Sunday, but ride-hailing service Uber announced it would celebrate the holiday a couple of days early in Florida with #UberIceCream.

The company said between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday, users can open their app, set their location and request “ICE CREAM” at the bottom. A few minutes later, users can expect a pair of Magnum ice cream bars to be delivered free of charge.

“Ice cream is the frozen treat that everyone loves — no matter where you live or who you are. #UberIceCream aims to bring together communities through this shared love,” the company said in a news release. “This year, millions of people will have the chance to participate in more than 400 cities where Uber operates around the world.”

Uber said the ice cream deliveries would be available in 10 Florida cities: Ft. Myers, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Miami, Naples, Orlando, Pensacola, Tampa Bay, Tallahassee and Sarasota.

The company encouraged users who get an ice cream delivery to upload a picture to their social media platform of choice with the #UberIceCream tag.
