Donna Swoyer, of South Whitehall Township, eats her Cherry-flavored Rita's ice at the Tilghman Street location in Allentown on Tuesday. She originally went for a frozen custard, but then accepted the free Cherry ice to fashion her own Gelati. Rita's stores gave out a free regular ice to celebrate the first day of spring.
