BACK TO SCHOOL SPLASH
Boca Raton's Sugar Sand Park is bringing in three inflatable water slides and a smaller one for toddlers at this year's free splash party before children head back to school.
"We had 1,400 people last year, families with kids who like to run around outside and get wet in August," special events coordinator Stacee Lanz said about the sixth annual Back to School Splash from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 12.
Children will have unlimited access to inflatable water slides from 20 to 30 feet high and up to 60 feet long.
"There will be three water slides for the older kids and one water slide for ages 5 and younger and kids who may need assistance," she said.
A smaller slide will be in the toddler area with tabletop water toys and a toddler fishing game.
"We do allow a parent to go with the child and we encourage it, if the child needs help climbing up," Lanz said.
"Wear a bathing suit or something they don't mind getting wet. Bring sunscreen, towels and a change of clothes if you're planning on going back into the community center after the event," she added. "We have turbo bubble machines. They're ongoing and they love to run through the bubbles."
Make-and-take activities include spray bottle painting and a marble tile craft. We fill up paint in spray bottles and it makes a pretty cool painting," Lanz said. "The tile is white and we draw on them and we make it marbleized."
Concessions will be available for purchase from Chick-fil-A, Bobby G's Drivin' Diner, Joji Frozen Yogurt and Tikiz Shaved Ice.
Back to School Splash is recommended for age 3 and older, and is weather permitting.
"We'll try to go no matter what," Lanz said. If the weather is extreme, look for a notice at Sugarsandpark.org or call 561-347-3900.
