ALABASTER – The Alabaster-based Kona Ice company will look to give locals a chance to chill out during what can be one of the most stressful days of the year, as it hosts its annual “No taxation without relaxation” event in the city.

The Kona Ice truck will travel to Alabaster certified public accountant Vic Smith’s office at 1109 First Street South – near the intersection of U.S. 31 and Interstate 65 – from 3-6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17.

The island-themed truck will hand out free cups of shaved ice and flower leis to those who attend the event.

“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 fifth annual National “Chill Out” Day,” read a Kona Ice release.

“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,” read the release. “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.”
