We've never heard of anything like this before, but it's true.

To celebrate the grand opening of the brand new DQ on Highway 155 in Noonday, the restaurant is giving customers the chance to be one of 100 winners to receive free Blizzards for an entire year.

The big day to register is Friday (July 17) at the official grand opening of the new store, which is having its ribbon-cutting at 10 a.m. But the store will be taking registrations until the end of the month, when it picks its winners.

The free Blizzards can be obtained at many stores in the Tyler area.

In addition to registering for free Blizzards for a year, DQ is having quite the party for its brand new Noonday store. The entire menu will be half off, and every 100th customer will receive a free Blizzard. They'll also be giving away tickets to the Texas Rangers, Splash Kingdom Waterpark and more.

The store also will be having specials all month long, and Thursday, July 30, is Miracle Treat Day. A portion of proceeds used to buy DQ treats will benefit the local Children's Miracle Network.

I don't know about you, but it's been pretty dang hot lately, and free Blizzards sound like a plan.

The grand opening also will feature games, prizes, a bounce house and a Blizzard + cone race.

The new store is on Highway 155 about a mile south of Loop 49.

So, who's gonna join me in winning free Blizzards for a YEAR?
