About A Splash of Summer

Looking for a fun and refreshing way to beat the summer heat? Bring the whole family and your bathing suits to City Hall (Thursdays in July) and Kiwanis Park (Thursdays in August) and cool off with our new splashpad.

Each week, we'll feature a new children's performer, providing even more entertainment and excitement for the whole family. From music and dancing to magic and storytelling, there's something for everyone to enjoy at A Splash of Summer.

Pack a picnic, grab your sunscreen and come join us for an evening of fun in the sun.
