CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Dairy Queen is celebrating the first day of spring with free ice cream cones.

On Wednesday, March 20 guests can receive a free, small vanilla cone as part of Dairy Queen’s annual “Free Cone Day” promotion. The offer is only good at participating, non-mall locations and there is a limit of one per customer. 

“We love that our tradition of Free Cone Day has become synonymous with return of warmer weather and bringing people together,” said Maria Hokanson, Executive Vice President of Marketing at the American Dairy Queen Corporation, in a statement. “We know the start of soft-serve season brings joy to our fans, and we can’t wait to help spread smiles.”

And if you miss out on the Queen's free offer, you can take part in another deal starting Thursday.

Dairy Queen is offering 50-cent small regular or dipped soft serve cones throughout the month of March. But you can only redeem this promotion if you have the DQ mobile app. 

The offer includes the new DQ orange, creamy and crunchy dreamsicle dip.

According to a national consumer survey conducted by American Dairy Queen Corporation, 92.2 percent of Americans say a DQ soft-serve cone would make them happy.

So if you are looking for something to put a smile on your face, why not grab a DQ cone?
