Rita's Italian Ice Hands Out Free Ice On The First Day Of Spring

On the first day of spring, hundreds of people celebrated locally with Rita's Italian Ice.

Rita's of Erie handed out a free Italian ice to each on of its customers Monday.

It's a tradition on the first day of spring, a way to celebrate the new season, "This day is a celebration of spring, and we love seeing people come out, they've been hibernating all winter... so we want to bring them out, get them outside and enjoy a free treat," said Rita's of Erie owner, Marilyn Majewski. 

The shop is located on West Gore road, just off of Peach street. And there was a steady line of customers Monday, lining up to get their hands one of the first signs on the season, "I'm very pleased with Mother Nature today, sometimes she hands us a real wacky day, but today she's given us a good one, I'm glad to see everybody out and about, they're not bundled up, it's not snowing, they're happy and they have smiles on their faces, people are clapping and doing all kinds of fun things," said Majewski.
