The hours left in the first day of spring are winding down, be sure you get your free cup of Rita’s Water Ice before the day is over!

Rita’s free ice promotion is running until stores close (either 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. depending on the store) so get over and get yourself some ice! Use this tool to find Rita’s locations.

At the Rita’s in Adams Morgan, Angela Brock said that Reed Elementary School and Oyster Elementary School, both located near the Rita’s location, brought students out in droves earlier today to take advantage of the free ice. They served up 357 cups of ice, said Brock.

Brock and her sister, Charnita Brock Walker, were featured in Washington Post Magazine a few weeks back.
