Kona Ice of Fort Wayne will be giving away free shaved ice on April 17, which is Tax Day, as part of National “Chill Out” Day. The idea is to help local residents chill out from their worries about giving to Uncle Sam. “The refreshing treat will ensure that there is no taxation without relaxation this tax season,” according to a news release.

The truck will stop downtown noon-2 p.m. April 17 at 911 S. Calhoun St. and 3-5 p.m. at Jackson R. Lehman Family YMCA at 5680 YMCA Park Drive West.

Amy Heilshorn is owner of Kona Ice of the Fort Wayne North.
