Ben & Jerry's free cone day is almost here.

On Tuesday, April 4, the ice cream chain will offer customers free ice cream cones at its locations around the world. The annual event is held from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., and customers can get as many free cones as they're willing to stand on line for. "We're not counting. Really, go for it," the company said on its website.

The first Free Cone Day was in 1979 — one year after co-founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield launched the Vermont-based company. The tradition has since expanded globally, and Ben & Jerry's says it will hand out more than 1 million free scoops this Tuesday.
