After a long and cold winter, Rita's Italian Ice held its 19th Annual First Day of Spring Free Ice Giveaway Custard Happiness by providing one free, regular size cup of Italian Ice to more than a thousand people locally and 1.4 million people nationwide. Despite colder temperatures on Sunday, most locations still noted long lines. Pictured are Hometown Rita's Italian Ice employee Mike Vanwert and owner Kathy Tebin, right, providing complimentary Italian Ices to Autumn Mumich, 9, left, and Wyatt Mumich, 7, children of Prudence Mumich of Lake Hauto.
