Dairy Queen Is Giving Everyone Free Ice Cream To Celebrate The First Day Of Spring

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- The arrival of the spring equinox is just hours away. And what better way to celebrate the end of winter than with a free ice cream cone at Dairy Queen?

That's right, Wednesday is Free Cone Day at DQ. That means at participating restaurants, you can get a free small vanilla soft-serve cone.

The event also serves as a fundraiser for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

"We love that our tradition of Free Cone Day has become synonymous with return of warmer weather and bringing people together," said Maria Hokanson, the executive vice president of marketing at DQ. "We know the start of soft-serve season brings joy to our fans, and we can't wait to help spread smiles."
