Free Cone Day.jpgAn annual tradition since 1979, when the famous duo Ben & Jerry's celebrated their one year business anniversary, "Free Cone Day" is a way for the celebrated ice cream company to thank their loyal customers in the best way possible -- with free ice cream. This year all Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops will be giving away plenty of their classic flavors, as well as some of their new flavors like Candy Bar Pie and Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt. If you haven’t tried them yet, this is a great opportunity to give them a lick! This year there's a new app for your smart phone that will guide you to the closest Ben & Jerry’s free cone location, and even provide a Free Cone Day frame to send photos to friends and loved ones to see what fun they’re missing. Whether it’s time for you to try a new flavor that you’ve been wondering about or just rendezvous with an old favorite and savor in the deliciousness that is free ice cream, either way it’s on Ben & Jerry. Grab a pal and head over to your local store for some good, ’scream fun! Tues., April 9, noon - 8 p.m. All ages. Free.
