DETROIT LAKES (KDLM) - Dairy Queen in Detroit Lakes and across the country is celebrating "Free Cone Day" with a free small vanilla soft-serve ice cream cone today, March 20.
Despite the recent snow in the Lakes Area, "This day has become a spring tradition and a sign that warmer weather is upon us," Maria Hokanson, executive vice president of marketing for American Dairy Queen Corp., said in a statement.
"Free Cone Day" is also a fundraiser for the Children's Miracle Network hospitals.
In the last 30 years, DQ has raised more than $130 million for Children's Miracle Network hospitals in its local communities. Last year, fans and franchisees contributed nearly $300,000 in one day.
