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 play time, 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.
