Join us on Friday, June 8th from (10:30 am to 1:30 pm) as we celebrate National Iced Tea Day Weekend with Lipton! Lipton will be taking over Pontiac, IL with a free event for road trippers and Illinois residents to attend and enjoy complimentary Lipton tea, best bites along the historic route 66.
We will be attending the Friday kick off but feel free to stay for the entire weekend. If you’re unable to attend, be sure to visit LiptonIcedTeaDay.com for a free 20 oz lipton ice tea for the first 100,000 entries.
Here’s more information about the weekend activities:
To kick-off the much anticipated start of summer, Lipton is launching “Refreshingly Road Trippin’ with Lipton,” an event that will take place the weekend of National Iced Tea Day, June 8-10, that invites consumers to experience – and taste – some of the best of the Route 66 road trip experience.
The first event of its kind will offer visitors the opportunity to get a full Route 66 one-stop-shop sensory experience – from the taste, smells and even “selfie-worthy” sights of the all-American road trip. Event attendees will be refreshed with Lipton Iced Tea, including the recently launched Lipton Iced Tea with a Splash of Juice in three juicy flavors – Berry, Tropical and Pear & Peach – paired with classic American roadside fare inspired by some of the famous stops on the 2018 Route 66 Road Trip Gems list. The spots on the list, can be viewed at LiptonRoadTrip.com, and include Bernardi’s II Restaurant (Pontiac, IL), known for their mouthwatering fried chicken, and Le Roy’s (Monrovia, CA), known for their generous portions and pastrami covered Le Roy’s burger, in addition to:
- Big Texan Steak Ranch (Amarillo, Texas)
- Britten Leaning Water Tower (Groom, Texas)
- Cozy Dog Drive In (Springfield, IL)
- Jigg’s Smokehouse (Clinton, OK)
- Meramec Caverns (Stanton, MO)
- Old Riverton Store (Riverton, KS)
- Ollie’s Station Restaurant (Tulsa, OK)
- Singing Road (Tijeras, NM)
- The Chili Parlor (Springfield, IL)
- Westside Lilo’s Cafe (Seligman, AZ)
The three-day experience will also feature memorable activities, such as the revealing of the town’s first Lipton mural and renaming the Route 66 highway “The Lipton Highway” for the weekend. The classic Route 66 experience will occur in the charming town of Pontiac, IL, located near the start of Route 66 and home to the Route 66 Association Hall of Fame and Museum.
We hope to see you there! Be sure to grab your free 20 oz Lipton Ice Tea, here.
