Dairy Queen is marking the first day of spring by giving away free ice cream.
A small vanilla cone will be given out to customers at non-mall locations on Tuesday, which is the Spring Equinox, while supplies last. "This day has become a spring tradition and a sign that warmer weather is upon us".
Rita's Italian Ice is celebrating the first day of spring with a giveaway. Last year's event raised more than $300,000 for the charity, according to a press release.
This is the fourth time DQ has hosted a free cone day. Most stores are open noon to 9 p.m.
Participating locations also will collect donations for local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for free ice cream! There is a one per person limit.
