POSTPONED Free Water Ice at Rita’s

March 19

Free
Having ritas for the first day of spring

March 14, 2020 UPDATE

In light of the increasing concerns around COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the precautionary risks associated with large gatherings, Rita’s is postponing our annual Free Ice Giveaway to celebrate First Day of Spring. Every March, Rita’s First Day of Spring Free Ice Giveaway brings together thousands of guests for one-of-a-kind treats and a free Italian Ice. It’s our favorite day of the year, and one that has become a treasured tradition. However, the health of our community and guests is our highest priority, so we are postponing this celebration as a precautionary move.

Right now our doors are still open and we’d love nothing more than to be the pick-me-up that brightens your day and serve up treats that put a smile on your face. We are committed to providing a clean and safe environment for our guests and team members. Please check with your local Rita’s for daily operating hours as it may vary by community.

 

All this TeamSpring energy really paid off! Phil didn’t see his shadow, so spring is on the way!

Come celebrate the official First Day of Spring at any Rita’s location on March 19th with a FREE Italian Ice.

If you can’t wait, don’t worry. All Rita’s locations will be open by March 1st.

For New Jersey locations please visit their website.
