Saying ‘farewell to summer’ in big way with Kids' Night Bash

Sulphur Springs plans on helping the local youth say “farewell to summer” in a big way this Friday evening as they host Kids’ Night on Celebration Plaza.

“We will have bounce houses and water slides for one last big blowout for the kids on Friday night before school starts again on Monday morning,” said Gus Gustafson with the City of Sulphur Springs Community Development Department. He said the fun begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 22 and lasts until 9 p.m. The public is invited to downtown Sulphur Springs to celebrate. The interactive star-shaped splash pad will be an inviting place for children to cool off from the 90-degree temperatures.

“It will be a big celebration complete with cotton candy, hot dogs and popcorn as a final farewell to summer,” added Gustafson. They will have the 17-foot inflatable movie screen up for more excitement with the movie Frozen. “Twisted Creations Balloons will be performing for the kids too.”

He said Game Night, Movie Night and The Market have all been very successful with support from many vendors and Sulphur Springs Dodge.

The City has had a tremendous increase in the number of events held for the public providing four times as many as last year.

Next on the Calendar: Crossroads Music Company, with support from GSC Enterprises Inc., will present another musical performance in their series held at the newly renovated City Hall, located at 201 N. Davis Street. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Bluegrass Band will again be filling the historic building with music on Saturday, Aug. 23 starting at 7 p.m.

“George Anderson will be filling in on Bass for this show, along with a special guest appearance by our own local singer/songwriter, Hannah Kirby,” said Gustafson. Tickets can be purchased at www.crossroadsmusiccompany.com/store.
