What better way to celebrate the first day of spring than with a sweet treat?

Dairy Queen is celebrating “Free Cone Day” with a free small vanilla soft-serve ice cream cone at participating locations today (March 20.) There’s a limit of one cone per person and mall locations aren’t participating.

“This day has become a spring tradition and a sign that warmer weather is upon us,” Maria Hokanson, executive vice president of marketing for American Dairy Queen Corp., said in a statement.

“Our cone with the curl on top is one of the most recognized treats in the world and that signature curl is a DQ quality test we take tremendous pride in. There’s a reason DQ soft serve tastes so delicious and special. From cow to cone, dairy farmers and local operators take tremendous pride in bringing smiles to millions of fans’ faces through our creamy DQ soft serve.”

The event is about more than just delicious ice cream, however. It’s also a fundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

In the last 30 years, DQ has raised more than $130 million for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in its local communities. Last year, fans and franchisees contributed nearly $300,000 in one day.
