KIDZ BOP's Best Time Ever tour provides returning fans with many fun surprises and new fans with their very first concert experience."

Juicy Juice Splashers has been named an official sponsor for the KIDZ BOP Best Time Ever tour. A better-for-you beverage, Juicy Juice Splashers* features fruity flavors and 50% less sugar vs. the leading juice, an option both parents and kids love. Fans can have fun at the Juicy Juice tent before the concert and will receive a free sample of the product after the performance. The partnership is supported by an exciting national sweepstakes which will be announced later this year. "We're thrilled to be the official sponsor of this year's Best Time Ever tour," said Ilene Bergenfeld, Chief Marketing Officer for Harvest Hill Beverage Company, owner of the Juicy Juice brand. "Just like Juicy Juice Splashers, KIDZ BOP offers parents and kids an experience that both will enjoy, making the partnership a natural fit. We can't wait to share in the concert fun with fans!"
