It's an annual tradition 22 years in the making.
Even though it's a little chilly outside, Rita's wants you to have a free treat! Since 1992, Rita's has been giving away a free Italian ice in a limited edition cup on the first day of Spring.
Aside from offering a free cup of any of their flavors, they're also unveiling a new Starburst cherry Italian ice today. Rita's at 1406 West Gore Road will open from noon until 10 Thursday.
