It might seem like winter is still on us but Tuesday, March 20 is the first day of spring. To celebrate, participating Dairy Queen locations across America are offering a free small vanilla soft-serve ice cream cone, complete with DQ's signature curl on top. Limit one per customer.

If you're feeling generous, you can also donate any amount you want to help the Children's Miracle Fund while you are there. DQ has donated over $300,000 from donations that came along for the ride with free cone day and you can be a part of it this year. Can't afford to donate? No problem, that cone is still on the house.

This is the fourth time DQ has hosted a free cone day. No purchase is necessary, but participating locations will be collecting donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Dairy Queen At 1652 Central Ave in Colonie is open today from 10:30 am - 10:00 pm.
