Mark the First Day of Spring with FREE Italian Ice! (Info below from the Rita’s website)
For the past 17 years, Rita's has been giving away a free, regular size Italian Ice to each and every guest to mark the first day of spring! This is a sweet date for Italian Ice lovers, as each year, hundreds of thousands of our guests visit Rita's in search of the first taste of spring.
A Philadelphia-born springtime tradition, the 17th annual Rita's giveaway was held on Friday, March 20, 2009 from noon to 10 p.m. at participating Rita's locations. Rita's guests showed their spring spirit and over 1.2 million cups of Italian Ice were given away in a ten hour period!
We would like to extend a special thank you to all of our guests who were able to enjoy a free Italian Ice during our 2009 First Day of Spring Celebration and we look forward to seeing you again in 2010! Be sure to mark your calendars to celebrate the first day of spring with Rita's on Saturday, March 20, 2010! This is surely a tasty tradition that you won't want to miss!
Thanks Frugalissa Finds!
While you are on their site, go on and sign up for their birthday club. Since I’m giving up sweets for Lent, I’m hoping that the rest of you will enjoy some extra Italian Ice and think of me. ;)
