1st Day Of Spring Means Free Dairy Queen Cone

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- It may be snowing out this morning, as you can see in Kylie Bearse's Tuesday morning forecast above, but winter is definitely leaving the building.

Spring officially starts at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday.

You can celebrate Spring with a free small cone of vanilla ice cream today at Dairy Queen.

Free though your cone may be, DQ is requesting customers to consider making a donation to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in lieu of paying for the cone. They say last year's drive generated $300,000 in donations.

You can also get free Italian Ice at Rita's stores Tuesday.

Rita's has several locations in the suburban Twin Cities.
