Wednesday is the first day of spring and you know what that means...
Free regular size water ice at every Rita's Water Ice-including the store at 55 West Eagle Road in Havertown.
Tuesday night was the calm before the storm. As the sun set on the last night of winter a steady flow of customers streamed in. Wednesday will be a different story.
Grace Woodock of Netwon Square is an Archbishop Carroll student by day, Rita's water ice of Haverford veteran by night. She's says it's all hands on deck Wednesday. She survived last year's First Day of Spring Free Water Ice promotion and says it's fun, but a little exhausting too.
The store is ready, she says, with the freezers already packed to the gills and every employee required to work the big day.
The most popular flavor? Mango, according to Grace. That seems to be the most popular flavor at several other Rita's in the area too. Wednesday from 12noon-9 p.m. would be a good chance to try out your favorite or a whole new flavor of water ice-while a regular size cup is free.
What's your favorite water ice flavor?
