Family Fridays return to the Julius Boehm Pool on May 3.

The monthly events, hosted by the city’s Parks & Recreation Department, will feature a number of fun swimming activities for all ages. The events are from 6:30-9 p.m. the first Fridays of the month, until the finale Aug. 2.

May 3 will be Underwater Adventure night. With ambient lighting, artificial seaweed, hoops, rings, toys and various sea creatures will be placed into the water for exploration.

June 7 will be Family Skwim Night. Skwim is a game that is a cross between water polo and Ultimate Frisbee, which utilizes flotation and flippers to ensure a good time for all.

Family Game Night will be held July 5, featuring a treasure hunt, toss-it-back, water limbo, buddy swimming and relay races. Games will be for all ages and swimming abilities.

Squirting Toy Fun Night will be the event’s finale, on Aug. 2. The Parks & Recreation Department invite participants to bring their own squirting toys to the pool and prepare for target practice and battle zones.

Drop-in fees are $10 per family, $4 per adult and $3 per youth/senior.
