June 1 is National Doughnut Day. And there’s no better way to celebrate than by indulging in a free doughnut, compliments of Krispy Kreme, Dunkin’ Donuts, LaMar’s Donuts and/or Duck Donuts.

On this special day, no purchase is necessary to receive your favorite Krispy Kreme doughnut or a bare, cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar donut at Duck Donuts. To enjoy a complimentary Classic Donut from Dunkin’ Donuts, you must purchase a small beverage.

Enjoy any nonspecialty doughnut — any doughnut with a hole in it — at LaMar’s for free. No purchase is necessary, but you must print or display the “Golden Ticket” coupon to snag this freebie.

Free fishing — ongoing

We hope you catch a big one!

If the visiting team first wins games 4, 5, 6 or 7, you get a free taco from 2-6 pm. on June 20.
