Central Otago kids are being invited to end the year with a splash at two "Dive Bomb into 2019" pool parties in Alexandra and Cromwell later this month.
Central Otago District Council has partnered with The Central App and Radio Central to host two parties on the final weekend of 2018.
The parties will be held at Molyneux Aquatic Centre in Alexandra on Saturday 29 December and at Cromwell Swim Centre on Sunday 30 December, with both parties running from 1-3pm in the afternoon. Entry is normal pool admission.
There will be music, a sausage sizzle, giveaways and spot prizes, and games for both the littlies and the big kids.
The wow event will be the Dive Bomb competition.
"Normally we have a pool rule of no dive bombing, so these parties are our one-off exception for kids to make as big a splash as they can," said Molyneux Aquatic Centre Team Leader Jen Ferris.
The Central App owner/developer Marielle Craighead said she and Shane Norton from Radio Central were both really excited to be involved in planning the events.
"We are both committed to our community and love the fact we can be part of this Central Otago summer tradition!"
