Spring is here and you can celebrate by either getting started on that spring cleaning or...treating yourself to some free ice cream!

Dairy Queen is welcoming in the start of the new season by offering a free small ice cream cones all day Monday.

There is a limit of one cone per person (probably a good thing for everyone health-wise). This kid looks like he has the right idea.

Enjoy a sweet first day of spring and Free Cone Day!

Furthermore, Rita's is giving away free Italian Ice from 12 p.m. until 9 p.m.

"In case you haven’t heard, March 20 is FREE Ice Day at Rita’s stores across the country! Cue the happy dance! Every year Rita’s kicks off the First Day of Spring by giving away free Italian Ice to one and all," Rita's stated on their website.
