Dairy Queen's serving up FREE ice cream cones Tuesday

To celebrate the first day of Spring (Tuesday, March 20), Dairy Queen is giving away free vanilla ice cream cones. All customers can receive a free small vanilla soft-serve cone, which of course comes with the signature DQ curl on top.

Are you aware of other great spring freebies?

They will also be accepting optional donations for Duke Children's Hospital and Health Center.

Dairy Queen has raised more than $130 million for the nonprofit network over 30 years, according to a news release. Free cones will be available during regular business hours all day long. Most stores are open noon to 9 p.m. How about FREE ice cream? There is a one per person limit.

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.
