It was a wet and refreshing afternoon during the Township’s annual Water Fun Fest on July 23. The event came at a welcomed time due to the recent heat wave in the
northeast where the temperature pushed the 100 degree mark during a sunny and hot summer day.
Several water slides and a dunk tank provided a treat for families on the Sports and
Recreation Complex turf field. They also had fun with super soakers and other water devices. The LFFD’s ladder truck was also on-hand to help soak and cool off the crowd.
Councilman Al Kahwaty, who began the yearly event last summer, said the turf
field provided a safer and cleaner venue than that of the original grass field, which would have resulted in muddy and slippery conditions arising from excess water.
“The turf field was the perfect venue for this event, and it was a great time,” he said, “It gave us the opportunity to plan a fun outdoor event where residents could find relief from the heat right here in Little Falls. John Pace and Tyler Passero did a terrific job, and we planned this together for months.”
11-year-old Evelyn Montes attended the event with her family and said it was a perfect
opportunity to bring people together and cool down as well.
“We live in town and I think this was such a great opportunity for everyone to share the day with each other instead of just sitting at home by an air conditioner on a hot day like today,” she said. “It was so much fun.”
