First day of spring means free Rita’s Italian Ice all day on Tuesday

The high on Tuesday in metro Atlanta is supposed to creep up to 65 degrees.

While that’s not blistering hot, it is a bit warmer than it has been in recent weeks. It’s also the first day of spring, so maybe you’re just in a warmer mindset. 

To celebrate, Rita’s Italian Ice is giving away free frozen treats on Tuesday.
