Is there anything better than the first day of spring? Yep — the first day of spring plus ice cream. And what’s even better that that?! FREE ice cream to celebrate the first day of spring. Here’s how to score the sweet treat that won’t cost you a dime.

When we think of spring, we indulge in fantasies about flowers and sunshine and, yep, warmer weather that’s perfect for eating some yummy ice cream. That’s why Dairy Queen is celebrating the beginning of the season with #FreeConeDay. Accepting donations for the Children’s Miracle Network (appreciated, though not necessary), you’ll be able to nab yourself a classic cone.

And while we were already aware (and loving) the fact that Dairy Queen is handing out free cones today, it looks like Rita’s Italian Ice is also in on the tasty celebration (and according to BuzzFeed, has been doing so annually for 25 years).

Folks are certainly into the free treats…
