The ice cream shop is giving away free cones on Tuesday as part of what it calls Treat SZN, which coincides with the first day of Spring.

The company says customers can get a “free small vanilla cone at participating U.S. non-mall locations.”

It is limited to one per person while supplies last.

Spring officially starts at 11:06 p.m. EDT on March 19, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

Dairy Queen isn’t the only company using the change of seasons to offer deals to customers.

Amazon announced its Big Spring Sale which starts on March 20. The Hollywood Reporter called it “Amazon’s spring Prime Day,” with sales of up to 50% on electronics, beauty products, fitness equipment and clothing. Other companies are also running Spring-branded sales — such as Target, Sephora, Rugs USA and AllModern, according to NorthJersey.com.

Rita’s Ice will give a free cup of water ice as it has done for more than a quarter century.
