We checked the forecast for the first day of spring, and it calls for frozen, free, and vanilla!  On Wednesday, we all get to celebrate because it's Dairy Queen's fifth annual Free Cone Day. The tradition of DQ giving away small vanilla soft-serve cones for free continues and we couldn't be happier. Free cone day will run all day Wednesday while supplies last at participating Dairy Queens. This day also means we get to help DQ raise money to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Maria Hokanson, the executive vice president of marketing, said in a statement. "We know the start of the soft-serve season brings joy to our fans, and we can't wait to help spread smiles." Dairy Queen keeps on giving even after Free Cone Day, the day after you can enjoy a small regular or dipped soft serve cone for just 50 cents! So download the DQ App and eat all the soft serve ice cream they'll serve you. (Limit one cone per person.)
