    Dairy Queen Celebrates Start Of Spring By Offering Free Ice Cream March 20th




    Dairy Queen is kicking off another spring with an ice cream cone on Tuesday, March 20 to celebrate the first day of spring.

    This is the fourth annual Free Cone Day campaign at Dairy Queen, and this year, you can donate to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals when you pick up your treat.

    According to Dairy Queen, the free soft serve cones will be available while supplies last. The company said cones are limited to one per customer.
