So today, March 20, 2017, is the first day of Spring and even though there are few signs of spring actually happening, one thing is continuing to taking place that is an annual tradition 'free stuff' on the first day of Spring.

Here are a few businesses with Hudson Valley ties that are marking today for their customers:

  • Dairy Queen is giving away one free small vanilla cone per person. They will also be collecting donations for Children's Miracle Network. This is only valid at non-mall DQ locations.
  • Rita's Italian Ice is giving away one free small Italian Ice per person from noon to 9PM, for the first day of Spring. Limit of one per person.
  • Outback Steakhouse is giving away one free Bloomin' Onion with purchase, today, 3/20/2017. Mention to your server when you order it.

What other business would you like to see have a 'First Day of Spring' giveaway?
