Dairy Queen kicks off Spring by offering free ice cream

March 20 is the first official day of Spring and what better way to celebrate then with free ice cream.

Dairy Queen will be offering free small vanilla soft serve ice cream cones at all of its non-mall locations Monday.

The cones are free but Dairy Queen will also be collecting donations for the Children's Miracle Network hospitals.

Dairy Queen says it raised $200,000 dollars for charity on the same day in 2016.
