The Walmart Summer Rewind is the first event of its kind at Walmart.

The Walmart Summer Rewind is a local celebration for Walmart communities, and will take place in Walmart parking lots across the U.S. There are plenty of fun, free activities and summer treats for you and your family (you can bring up to three minors per guardian) to enjoy.

“We’re excited to rewind the clock for even more customers this year in celebration of summertime fun we don’t want to end,” Walmart tells The Krazy Coupon Lady in a statement. “Whether it’s jumping into that famous Walmart ball cage or opening the freezer doors to snack on sweet treats, Summer Rewind gives our customers the chance to do all the things they were never allowed to do as kids — right from their local store parking lot.”
