Ben & Jerry's ice cream shop locations are giving away free ice cream cones through 8 p.m. Tuesday to celebrate its 34th birthday.

The ice cream maker's national free cone day is held every year as a way to thank customers. People who vist a participating "scoop shop" will get a free scoop of their favorite flavor of ice cream or Greek frozen yogurt.

The Ben & Jerry's at The District in Tustin is using the event to promote arthritis awareness. It's accepting donations for the Arthritis Foundation of Orange County.
