The community is invited to participate in the 2nd annual Summer Kick-Off Party sponsored by the City of Escondido Recreation department on Saturday, June 24, from noon. to 3 p.m. at Washington Park.
Escondido residents of all ages will learn about all the exciting programs being offered through the City’s Community Services departments as well as enjoy their first summer swim at the Washington Park swimming pool.
The theme of the Kick-Off event is “Cruise into Summer” and it will feature various recreation class presentations such as Hip-Hop, Pound, and Tae Kwon Do, in addition to lifeguard life-saving and Escondido Police Department K-9 demonstrations.
Participants will be given a passport to guide them through the available booths where they can learn about different Escondido sports leagues, recreational opportunities, the Escondido Public Library’s Summer Reading Club, as well as enjoy crafts, face-painting, scootering and watching a brief PAL basketball game.
Passport holders can spin the wheel for a prize after the passport has been stamped. According to Recreation Manager Karen Williams, “This event celebrates the summer months when kids and families can enjoy a variety of activities that are healthy, exciting, and fun!”
This event is free and open to the public.
