Residents can enjoy a free scoop for National Ice Cream Day!

Sunday, July 18, is National Ice Cream Day, a day where our cones runneth over with amazing deals from creameries all over the nation. Naturally, the confectionery Kilwins is passing it forward the one way they understand: free ice cream, of course! And D.C. residents are in for a treat because they're holding a pretty sweet promotion.

Ice cream lovers can swing by their Navy Park store for a scoop on the house between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. It's simple: Just give them a follow on Instagram and Facebook, and show your proof of residency when you get to the counter. There, you'll promptly get your pick of delectable flavors to claim for your free treat. Easy-peasy!

Founded by Don and Katy Kilwin in 1947, the Michigan-based shop has expanded to over 140 locations around the country with its brand of gourmet confections. In addition to ice cream and cones made in-house, the shop is known for goodies like caramels, toffee, and Mackinac Island Fudge (D.C. location), which sits right across from Nationals Park, is also the first one to open in the city, making this National Ice Cream Day even more special.

This promotion is exclusively for the D.C. location, so we recommend checking with your local shop specifically to find out what deals they'll be offering. You can get the scoop on Kilwins' website and see what's churning near you. Also, be sure to tag your friends with #Kilwinsdc to spread the word. Scoops up!

Address: 1250 Half St SE, Washington, D.C. 20003
