As temperatures reached 115 degrees, Tuesday afternoon, many Tucsonans are opting for an icy treat. 

Raspados are shaved ice, fruit and ice cream which can cool anyone off when it's hot outside. 

Lily Halos from the Oasis on St. Mary's says the cool treats are popular in Tucson when the sun is unbearable. 

One customer, Miguel Robles, and his friends stopped by Oasis during their lunch break. 

"I was just telling my friends, it's a little hot let's go out and get a little treat. Just enjoying some cool downs," says Robles. 

Over on the Eastside at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park - kids enjoyed the splash pad. 



"We're beating the heat," says Amy Fox.

Fox and her two grandchildren, Greg and Riley, took a ride from Sahuarita to Tucson.

While it's a long ride, Fox says it's worth it. "We needed some cool water," says Fox. 

Over at Little Anthony's, at 7010 E. Broadway Blvd is giving away a free scoop of ice cream to customers when temperatures reach 105 or more.
