Wednesday is the first day of spring, and to celebrate, Dairy Queen is giving away free ice cream.

Customers will be able to get a small vanilla soft-serve cone for free at participating Dairy Queen locations.

In addition to the free cone on Wednesday, customers can get a small regular or dipped soft-serve cone for 50 cents by using the DQ mobile app from March 21 to 31.
