Heartland residents stayed cool and enjoyed the Fourth of July at â??Splash Bash.â?? 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. â??Itâ??s very fun,â?? said Tyson Perry. â??I've had a blast today.â??
Not everyone was outside, some people, like parent Jesse Krevs, were enjoying the inside pool with his family. â??We're having a great time,â?? Krevs said. â??It's actually a beautiful day especially compared to last year when it was so hot.â??
Festivities continue Friday beginning at 5 p.m. in Kirksville on the courthouse lawn.
