Next Saturday the Parkes Aquatic Centre is holding the Shire’s biggest pool party, the Big Summer Splash. Parkes Shire Council, in partnership with the Community Drug Action Team (CDAT), are hosting the outdoor event for students aged 10 – 18 years. Member of the Parkes Pool and Youth Committees, Cr Patrica Smith said this was a great opportunity for Parkes Shire youth to cool off and kick back to some live entertainment.
“Parkes Aquatic Centre will be extending its opening hours into the night to host the Shire’s biggest pool party. The cost is just pool entry which grants you access to the giant inflatable slide until sundown, a sausage sizzle, and a front row seat to the gig.” Local acoustic duo, Salt to the Wound, will be performing live from 7pm to 10pm.
The Junior Splash Party for 10 to 12 year olds will be from 6 to 8pm, and the Senior Splash Party for 13 to 18 year olds is from 8pm-10pm. Members of CDAT will be cooking the free barbeque, while the Poolside Café will be open for everything else. The event is part of CDAT’s efforts to prevent young people from engaging in anti-social behaviour, by providing engaging, alcohol and drug-free activities for the community. For more information,
