      Families spend July 4 at Splash Bash

      Heartland residents stayed cool and enjoy the Fourth of July at â??Splash Bash.â??

      Heartland residents stayed cool and enjoyed the Fourth of July at ??Splash Bash.?? From 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. the Kirksville Aquatic Center was packed with parents and children who all wanted to take a dive in the pool. Not only was the price cheaper Thursday, the center also gave out free strawberry floats.

      One ten-year-old shared with KTVO his excitement. ??It??s very fun,?? said Tyson Perry. ??I've had a blast today.??

      Not everyone was outside, some people, like parent Jesse Krevs, were enjoying the inside pool with his family. ??We're having a great time,?? Krevs said. ??It's actually a beautiful day especially compared to last year when it was so hot.??

      Festivities continue Friday beginning at 5 p.m. in Kirksville on the courthouse lawn.
