No Taxation without Relaxation: Kona Ice in Pittsburgh is Bringing Back its National “Chill Out” Day

Island-Themed Truck to Give Away FREE Shaved Ice at Pittsburgh Pennsylvania to Help Community “Chill Out” on Tax Day

WHAT: With Tax Day right around the corner, many of us are reaching into our pockets to pay-off Uncle Sam. To relieve taxpayers of the stress associated with meeting the federal deadline, Kona Ice will be hosting its seventh annual National “Chill Out” Day.

The island-inspired truck will be parked at The Pointe at North Fayette in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania to hand out FREE cups of tropical shaved ice to all who stop by. The refreshing treat will ensure that there is no taxation without relaxation this tax season. Find participating hours and locations at

The event is open to the public.

WHY: 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. 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 $100 million to the communities it serves.
