Free Cone Day Welcomes Spring

Dairy Queens across the country celebrated the first day of Spring on March 19 with free ice cream cones. On Free Cone Day Dairy Queen customers received one free small vanilla soft-serve cone.

The franchise announced the event on X, and in a press statement by Maria Hokanson, executive director of market­ing for Dairy Queen. “Nothing says warmer weather is around the corner quite like Free Cone Day. We’re inviting fans every­where to grab their friends and families and get their ‘Treat Szn’ started with something sweet – on us!”

“Longer days and budding blooms signal spring’s arrival. We like to think of it, the start of Treat SZN,” Dairy Queen’s official website posted. “Even if you (like us) enjoyed our world-famous DQ® soft serve in the depths of winter, a cone just hits differently when the ground begins to thaw.”

In Two Harbors, spring also marks the re-opening of Dairy Queen, and the end of the winter countdown on their sign on 7th Avenue. Children and families can now be seen on the sidewalk outside the franchise enjoying dairy treats in the slowly warm­ing weather – which was tempo­rarily thwarted this week when the North Shore was served up a blizzard. A sweet treat can be just the boost a day needs, and Dairy Queen’s free cone day makes that free and fun for ev­eryone.

Young ice cream lover Ferran S. said of the free cone day, “I really like that day. But it was pretty cold for ice cream. I got a really tall ice cream and I could eat it all by myself.” His sister Finland added, “I love swirly ice cream on a cone! Our whole family got to get one and then we went swimming!”. Ferran and Finland’s other sister, River, also had something to say. “We got ice cream and it was very cold, but we ate in the truck so we would stop shivering.”

Dairy Queen offers special deals at other times of the year as well, such as the summer Blizzard reveal and deal April 1-14, so keep your eyes out for more dairy deliciousness.

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
