TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) - Some local restaurants are celebrating the arrival of spring with cool freebies.

Dairy Queen will be serving free ice cream on March 20, the first day of spring.

It's the chain's third annual free cone day.  Participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill locations will give each customer a small vanilla cone.

The chain is hoping the free perk will get customers to donate on behalf of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Those of you who like Italian ice will be happy to know that participating Rita’s will be giving away free Italian ice from noon to 9 p.m. on March 20.

Rita’s has been giving away free Italian ice on the first day of spring for more than two years.
