School will soon be in full swing! But wait, not so fast…let’s flashback to summer and invite you all to our annual Back to School Splash Bash event, Saturday August 24th from 10am to 1pm at the LWR YMCA. Come and enjoy one last go of water slides, music and fun. We will deliver a wet and wild morning that will offer a towering 26 foot water slide and 34 foot surf & slide. These slides will have you hesitating before taking the plunge. This event will cool you down fast. The event will offer dunk tank dropping, inflatable homerun derby, design your own backpack and the popular balloon artist. Many sponsor booths will be on hand offering watermelon and lemonade. Participate in pool games and win useful supplies to get you through the school year. To keep you fueled, a BBQ lunch and ice cream truck will be on hand with items to purchase. Family time on our dime, because this event is free; children and parents of all ages are invited. We do ask that children be accompanied by a parent and to protect our new swimmers the YMCA will provide body bubbles to keep them afloat and lifeguards will be on duty. Additional recommended items to bring are swimsuits, towels, water shoes, sunscreen, and lawn chairs.
