This will be the shaved ice company’s fifth-annual Chill Out day and will have the island-themed truck giving away the free shaved ice at Moore Chamber of Commerce and Advantage Bank to help the community during tax day. The refreshing treat will ensure that there is no taxation without relaxation this tax season.

In a release, the company stated that “with Tax Day right around the corner, many of us are reaching into our pockets to pay-off Uncle Sam.”
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 communities it serves.
