It may not be June yet, but summer is ahead of schedule in San Diego thanks to Tillamook.

Products from the Oregon-based dairy company are stocked in many grocery stores in the region. But this month Tillamook will travel down the west coast to serve up some free treats in San Diego, street side and retro style.

The upcoming Summer Scoop Series — happening May 18-29 — offers complimentary four scoop ice cream flights at beloved local hang-outs. Serving the sweets out of retrofitted Volkswagen buses and colorful ice cream carts, Tillamook seeks to send San Diegans down memory lane and reminisce about chasing after ice cream trucks as kids.

During the series, the buses and carts will make 13 stops throughout the county including breweries, distilleries, restaurants and stores. Here are a few locations and dates to pair with previous plans and fit any schedule this May.
