How to get FREE ice cream cone today

DIAMONDHEAD, MS (WLOX) - Between this week's warm temperatures, and Daylight Saving Time, it feels like Mother Nature is already celebrating the end of winter. Dairy Queen is doing the same today with free ice cream cones for everyone.

March 15 is Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen. All customers at participating DQ locations can get a free small vanilla cone, which would normally cost you about $2.

As part of the giveaway, Dairy Queen will be asking customers to consider making a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Last year, each participating Dairy Queen store handed out an average of 1,330 cones on Free Cone Day, while collectively raising $140,000.

Freebie lovers, take note that Dairy Queen isn't the only ice cream seller with a Free Cone Day. Each year, Ben & Jerry's and Häagen-Dazs host their own "free cone" days. Those freebie events should take place later this spring.
