Another sign of warmer weather is here, or at least coming - Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's.

The Twitter status says it all. Today starting at noon you can can your free cone at following Capital Region locations

  • Lark Street in Albany
  • Sage & 15th Street in Troy

The company stockpiles on their flavors and celebrate their fans by giving them free ice cream all day on April 8. That's all their locations in 26 countries and 742 'scoop shops' around the world.

The tradition started back in 1979 as a way to celebrate the company's first year in business and has since gone on to be a tradition that many look forward to.

Sure there will be long lines today in the rain, but it's so worth it.
