KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Not only is Tuesday, March 20th the first day of Spring, it's also Free Cone Day at participating Dairy Queen locations! The restaurant has more than 6,800 locations worldwide.

During the promotion, Dairy Queen will be collecting donations for local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Last year's event raised more than $300,000 for the charity, according to a press release.

It may not feel like spring just yet, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate it.

This is the fourth time DQ has hosted a free cone day. Get your free treat between noon and 9 p.m. Nevertheless, Dairy Queen is offering ice cream fans the opportunity to enjoy the first signs of spring with some tasty vanilla ice cream.

"We strive to not only serve our guests fresh, delicious Italian Ice, but happiness too", said Linda Chadwick, Rita's president and CEO, in a statement.

Dairy Queen Free Cone Day 2018 is nearly here so make sure to grab some ice cream this Tuesday.

The only downside is that mall locations will not be participating, but making the trip out to a Dairy Queen is still worth it as you can top your ice cream with something else for an additional cost. The three finalists all win a year of free ices.

Rita's will select the top three excuses and then the company's Facebook fans will pick the victor of a trip for two with a retail value of $3,600. This column reflects her opinion.
