I am having a large group meeting and need an ice cream truck to drive up, ring the bells and serve ice cream novelties to my group during an afternoon break......anyone know where I can find an ice cream truck? (I can even provide the novelties but need the truck.)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

    If you're willing to spring for higher quality ice cream then you can hire Rick's Ice Cream (Palo Alto) or Pepito's (South San Francisco) to cater your ice cream break. Dreyer's used to have a party truck available for hire as well, but again, not the novelties.

        I believe Ici in the East Bay can do that.... pretty sure they were at a friend's wedding.

        oh, it's not a truck, they bring a freezer and an umbrella... maybe you can get a bell tho.... the ice cream was really good!

          We did an ice cream social a few years ago and went with Kicks in San Jose. There website (http://www.cookiesandicecream.com/) is not accessible right now, but their twitter site indicates they are active:
