FREE Rita’s ice, DQ cones and more today!

Leslie Penkunas//March 20, 2018

We’re under a winter storm warning, but it is the first day of spring. And that means some free cool treats!

Rita’s Italian Ice celebrates the first day of spring with its 26th annual First Day of Spring Free Italian Ice Giveaway. Last year, Rita’s gave away nearly 1 million cups of Italian ice on the first day of spring. Head to your local Rita’s Italian Ice today between noon and 9 p.m. for your FREE treat.

This year, Rita’s also has a contest, “The Ultimate Hooky Trip,” with a three-day, two-night trip  to Miami awarded to the contestant who posts the best excuse to ditch their daily responsibilities on the First Day of Spring and visit their nearest Rita’s for free Italian Ice.

Maybe soft-serve ice cream is more your style? Dairy Queen is celebrating today’s Vernal Equinox with a FREE small vanilla cone available at participating stores. (They do note that mall locations are not participating.)

Live near Bird-in-Hand? Then you’re in luck! Bird-in-Hand Bakery & Café, 2715 Old Philadelphia Pike, is giving away one FREE scoop of their artisan ice cream today until 6 p.m. to every customer! Their premium ice cream is made on the premises in small batches. It begins with the dairy base from a local Pennsylvania dairy.

Don’t let the threat of winter weather stop you from celebrating spring’s (calendar) arrival. Grab your coat, hat and gloves and go get your FREE icy-cold treats!
