Kona Ice will sponsor its Fifth Annual National Chill Out Day in Conway on tax day.
Bailey Hewitt, spokesman, said Kona Ice will host the event from 3 to 5 p.m. April 17 at the Conway Towne Centre in Conway and also at Bass Pro Shops in Little Rock. An island-themed truck will be onsite, passing out free shaved ice treats to passers-by during the event.
"With tax day right around the corner, many of us are reaching into our pockets to pay off Uncle Sam," Hewitt said. "To relieve taxpayers of the stress associated with meeting the federal deadline, Kona Ice will be hosting its Fifth Annual National Chill Out Day."
The event is free and open to anyone who stops by during the two-hour time slot.
"The island inspired truck will be parked at Bass Pro Shops and Conway Towne Centre to had out free cups of tropical shaved ice to all who stop by," Hewitt said. "The refreshing treat will ensure that there is no taxation without relaxation this tax season."
Through the years, Kona Ice has given back more than $50 million in frozen treats to its customers.
"National Chill Out Day is one of the many ways Kona Ice is encouraging the nation to take a step back, relax and enjoy a Kona," Hewitt said. "National Chill Out Day is one small, yet powerful way the brand hopes to put a smile on people's faces. Through partnerships with schools, youth sports leagues and other neighborhood organizations, Kona Ice has given back more than $50 million to the community it serves."
