Dairy Queen to give away ice cream on Free Cone Day

It may not feel like spring just yet, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate it.

You'll want to spring for two frozen freebies Tuesday.

On March 20, DQ locations around the country, including right here in Acadiana, will be handing out one free small vanilla cone to customers.

Donations will be funneled to local children's hospitals in the network, and will stay in local communities.

Last year, almost $300,000 was raised in one day for local hospitals.

The company, which has more than 600 locations in 31 states, expects to give away more than 1 million cups of free Italian ices.

Dairy Queen will be celebrating the first day of spring by sharing a sweet treat.

The offer is good at participating non-mall locations and limited to one per person.
