If you're looking to cool off and have some family fun this holiday weekend, the Kirksville Aquatic Center is the place to be.
On the Fourth of July, the Aquatic Center will be holding its eighth annual Splash Bash event. From 1-5 p.m., adults and kids can enjoy the outdoor pool for an admission of $2.50. There will also be a free ice cream treat.
"A strawberry float is how we are going to celebrate the Fourth of July here this year. It's very similar to a root beer float, just made with strawberry soda. It is something everyone is going to love," said Kirksville Parks and Recreation Department Recreation Specialist Robin Harden.
