It's a tradition the national company has repeated for two decades, and previous year, the chain gave away over one million Italian ices in a nine-hour period.

Rita's of Vacaville on Alamo Drive is open between noon and 9 p.m. and the freebie will be served in a limited-edition, First Day of Spring cup. "And we are kicking off the season with free ice for customers". If you want multiple servings, a larger size or something fancier, like a gelati or blendini, you'll have to pay.

Celebrate the kickoff of the new season Monday with free, frozen treats from Dairy Queen and Rita's Italian Ice.
