DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Though it doesn’t look a day over 85, 7-Eleven stores across metro Detroit are celebrating their 86th birthday with free small Slurpee drinks on Thursday, July 11.

That means all are welcome to grab their favorite Day Glo drink from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. while supplies last.

“The birthday freebie is a small-size Slurpee drink this year – almost DOUBLE the size of the prior 7.11 ounce birthday drink,” 7-Eleven said in a press release.

Since 2002, millions of free Slurpee drinks have been shared with guests on this day to thank 7-Eleven customers for their patronage and support.

But the party doesn’t end with free drinks. Slurpee fans are also invited to grab their dance shoes and bust a move with the “Slurpee Dance.” Fans can visit HERE to watch YouTube sensation Nathan Barnatt perform the dance and view instructional videos. Guests can upload videos of themselves “shakin’ their groove thang” in honor of the big day to YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

You can also download 7-Eleven’s smartphone app (available via the App Store or Google Play) to take advantage #AWESUMMER mobile coupons for free and discounted drinks, treats and eats all summer long. Each week through Labor Day, exclusive coupons for goodies, like free Slurpee drinks and free Snickers Ice Cream Bars as well as other special offers, will appear on the 7-Eleven app.

7-Eleven’’s Slurpee summer flavor line-up offers more variety than ever and includes two limited-edition flavors in both Slurpee and Slurpee Lite. In addition to popular everyday flavors, the Slurpee summer flavor line-up includes Slurpee Lite Sugar Free Mango Lemonade and Slurpee Strawberry Lemonshade for the months of July and August. 

Based in Dallas, Texas, 7-Eleven operates, franchises or licenses about 9,300 stores in North America. Globally, there are more than 46,800 7-Eleven stores in 16 countries.
