First published in 2014. We update our New Jersey spring freebies guide every year when new dates are available. We’re currently updating for 2022.
It’s Spring! It’s time to celebrate with some free treats. Did you know all across our area you and your kids can get some great freebies?
The first day of spring is almost here and if you’re like my family you get VERY excited. The first day of spring usually means lots of spring freebies. When possible we love to celebrate the first day of spring by taking a trip to the park and ending the day with a trip to Rita’s Water Ice for a free frozen treat. Whether you are spending the day indoors or squeezing in some outdoor playtime, don’t miss out on one of these great locations offering free treats and discounts on the first day of spring or other spring days.

Rita’s Ice First Day of Spring Water Ice Promotion
UPDATE for 2022 – Rita’s Water Ice free water ice day has a major change for 2022. This year, the Rita’s app is required to receive your Free First Day of Spring Ice. On March 20th, all app users will be issued a Free Ice, valid 3/20-3/27/2022. You’ll have a whole week to use your reward and get your Free Ice! The reward can only be used once.
Parents will be able to redeem free ice for their children using their reward. From their Facebook page, “Adults will be able to use their free Ice app reward to redeem a Free Ice for each child under 13 that’s present with them for the transaction. Just show your app at the shop in order to redeem!”
Whether it’s cloudy or sunny we love Rita’s any time! It has become a family tradition for us to have that first cold sweet Rita’s and cross our fingers for spring weather. For NJ locations and local store hours click here. For more details visit our Free Water Ice at Rita’s event listing.
