SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Lots of people cooled off on this hot and sticky day with a free Slurpee from 7-Eleven.

For many of them, it was just the refresher they needed.

On this date,  July 11, 7-Eleven convenience stores are celebrating a birthday by giving out complimentary cups of the icy Slurpees to all customers.

The promotion was scheduled from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
