Splish splash…everyone had a blast at our Stein Campus on July 13. That’s when Splish Splash Day, St. Ann Center’s annual salute to summer, was celebrated—filling our parking lot with wading pools, inflatable slides and enough games and activities to keep our children and adults busy (and drenched!) for hours.
Showers of fun were forecast as the kids made the rounds, checking out the Slip ‘N Slide and a bouncy obstacle course. For the adults, there were misting bottles for impromptu water fights, plus a bean bag toss and hopscotch station.
The attire was casual, ranging from swimsuits and shorts to T-shirts and breezy sundresses. Straw hats were in fashion. And there was a line of all ages waiting to get their smiling faces painted.
Hunger didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits, either. Slushies, slices of sweet watermelon and cotton candy evaporated as the crowd grew. Babies to octogenarians got their summer jam on to a cool playlist of tunes. What an amazing way for generations of summer-lovers to spend a sunny July day together!
