Free ice may be falling from the sky Friday, but celebrate the first day of spring with a bit of sweetness from Rita's.

The frozen custard and flavored ice shop will give away any flavor of its signature water ice in any size from 12-9 p.m. on Friday, March 20.

Rotating flavors include blood orange, cherry, raspberry and creamy flavors like dulce de leche and cookies 'n cream. Sugar-free and dairy-free options are always available.

The good news is that if the predicted four inches of snow falls there won't be much of a line for this free treat.

This annual tradition will take place snow or sunshine!
