Blizzard anyone? Dairy Queen opens for the season/Slideshow

Spring really is on the way.


Earlier this week, choruses of pinkletinks sang their spring songs. And on Friday, Edgartown hosted yet another sign of the season: the opening of Dairy Queen.

Children from all over the Island reported dashing out of their schools to get in line.
Dozens of Vineyarders waited on a cool but sunny day, ready to order chocolate, vanilla, twists and blizzards.

All the children this reporter spoke to just shouted “Ice Cream!” in response to questions.
