 Ritas 17-year-old Scott Jarvie of Egg Harbor Township knows it's twice as nice to share as he gets a gelati for his mom and himself at the first day of spring celebration at Rita's of Northfield. NORTHFIELD- With the fickle weather 2014 has given us so far it's not surprising how excited everyone was to celebrate the first day of spring. And one of the most popular ways to celebrate the new season is with a free cup of Rita's Water Ice. Franchise wide Rita's offers a cup of its smooth, cool ice for free to help usher in spring every year. In Northfield the lines started at 11 a.m. according to owner Roseanne Murphy and it never let up. By dinner time it was an hour's wait to get a taste of summer but no one was complaining. She had her crew and every member of her family scooping to keep the customers happy and the line moving.
