Wednesday, March 20, is officially the first day of spring and Dairy Queen is celebrating with free ice cream.

At participating (non-mall) locations, customers will be treated to a free, small, soft-serve vanilla cone.

As a part of Free Cone Day, some Dairy Queen locations are accepting donations for the Children's Miracle Network.

You may want to call ahead to find out if a store is participating in Free Cone Day. For contact information and more locations, visit dairyqueen.com
