    What better way to celebrate the start of spring than with ice cream or Italian ice?

    Dairy Queen is giving away free ice cream cones Monday to celebrate the first day of spring. 

    Customers can stop at any participating location to get a small vanilla soft-serve cone with the signature curl on the top. The ice cream chain is also asking for donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals during its free cone day.

    If ice cream isn't your thing, Rita's Italian Ice is also kicking off the first day of spring with an Italian ice giveaway — a tradition that has been going on for over 20 years.
