Spring officially starts Wednesday, March 20th at 5:58pm in Michigan and one way to celebrate the first day of spring is by getting a free ice cream cone from Dairy Queen during their annual Free Cone Day at participating Dairy Queen or DQ Grill & Chill locations across the country. The Dairy Queen website says that no purchase is necessary to get your free ice cream cone, however, participating locations will be collecting donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. (So, you should probably do the right thing while you're there and make a donation to a great cause. But that's up to you...)

**Please note that the free cone won't be available at mall locations. There is a limit of one free ice cream cone per person. The free cone offer will be taking place all day during the normal DQ business hours. Click here for more info.
