Celebrate first day of spring with free ice cream from Dairy Queen
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - March 20 marks the first day of spring, but there's also another reason to celebrate: It's also Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen!
On Monday, participating Dairy Queen restaurants will give each customer a small, soft-serve vanilla ice cream cone for free all day in honor of Children’s Hospitals Week and the first day of spring.
This is the third year for Free Cone Day. The chain hopes the perk will encourage customers to donate to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Some locations are using Free Cone Day to raise funds for their local children’s hospital by exchanging the ice cream for a donation or by adding toppings or dipping the cone for a contribution.
Dairy Queen says the offer is only valid at non-mall locations.
