First day of spring means free ice cream cones at Dairy Queen

First day of spring means free ice cream cones at Dairy Queen

On March 20, DQ locations around the country, including right here in Acadiana, will be handing out one free small vanilla cone to customers.

There is a location in Cicero on Brewerton Road.

Dairy Queen and Rita's are celebrating the start of spring by offering free ice cream and Italian ice.

Rita's has its own sweet freebie for its 26th annual first day of spring giveaway, which will be during regular hours Tuesday.

"The First Day of Spring, along with a free cup of Rita's Italian Ice, gives us the flawless opportunity to start the season by bringing a smile to everyone's face".

To celebrate the first day of Spring on Tuesday, Dairy Queen is giving out free vanilla cones at all participating stores. and yes, stores in South Florida are participating. "This day has become a spring tradition and a sign that warmer weather is upon us".

Last year, almost $300,000 was raised in one day for local hospitals.

The only downside is that mall locations will not be participating, but making the trip out to a Dairy Queen is still worth it as you can top your ice cream with something else for an additional cost. Not all Dairy Queen stores may participate.
