I scream, you scream, we all scream because winter is finally over and we can get some free ice cream!

Okay, we all know that West Michigan rarely follows the rules when it comes to the first day of spring. Most years, it snows for weeks past the start of the big winter defrost, but that doesn't mean we can't jump for joy and celebrate that we can see the light at the end of the tunnel

While this week the weather is creeping back into the 30s for highs (yuck) you can still take advantage of this deal, you'll just need to wear gloves while you're doing it.

Dairy Queen announced that in honor of the first day of spring on Tuesday, March 19th, they will be giving out one free small vanilla ice cream cone to everyone who comes by one of their participating locations. No purchase required (except the mall locations)
