If you have a passion for ice cream, Sunday is a good day for you.

Several national restaurant chains are celebrating National Ice Cream day with deals on Sunday and beyond.

While most deals are for free or discounted single servings of ice cream, fans of McDonald’s vanilla soft-serve cones have a chance to win a “lifetime supply” of the ice cream if they are the lucky person who gets the Golden Arches Cone. One person at each participating location will be given the special cone between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Here are some places celebrating National Ice Cream Day. Remember, not every restaurant will offer the special deals. Check with your local restaurant.
