Now it may not feel like it but tomorrow (March 20th) is the first official day of Spring and Rita's Ice plans on upholding their tradition of giving everyone who stops by from 12:00 PM to 9:00 PM a free Italian Ice.

Rita's has been giving away free Italian ice to kick of the Spring season for over 20 years now and I am sure that I am not the only one that is beyond thankful.

Plus, this year they are hosting a contest looking for their customers' best "excuses" for leaving their daily responsibilities to grab a free Italian ice. The prize is pretty good: the "Ultimate Hooky Trip" to Miami and free Rita's for a year! Enter here!
