The Manchester (213 E. Main St) Dairy Queen is not participating since they do not open for the season until April.

Our Experience Last Year

Last year, we both enjoyed a cherry topped treat ($1 donation to each). Personally, I love that they let my daughter get hers in a cup which she prefers.

2016 was the perfect day for Free Cone Day. It was t-shirt weather. We went right after school. While there was a short line, it moved quickly.

If your kids aren’t in school yet, I recommend stopping by at lunch/early afternoon before the after school crowds.
