Does the Ice Cream man still come around ?

When my sons were young, we lived in a town in NJ , the ice cream man used to come to our block . I am wondering if the ice cream trucks still come around ringing the bells and the kids go buy ice cream from him. I live in the country , no sidewalks or ice cream trucks.

Three four times a day, I think there are at least two different trucks that come around. The only thing I don't like is when they come around after dark, too dangerous in my opinion.

They even come around our little back roads here in Mexico - playing THE SAME SONGS that used to drive DH crazy, e.g., Turkey in the Straw, The Entertainer, etc. Isn't that amazing?
