Desert Ridge Marketplace continues its popular District Splash Days series, offering a vibrant mix of family-friendly activities at The Splash Pad. Positioned conveniently near AMC Theatres and Tikka Shack in The District, this event draws families from far and wide.

The series features two specific events in July, each promising an engaging and fun-filled Wednesday morning from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. The first event on July 10 is the “Puppy Patrol Party,” where kids can enjoy the cool waters of the splash pad while moving to beats spun by DJ Funergy. This party also offers free photos with everyone’s favorite characters from “Puppy Patrol,” allowing little ones to capture moments with their heroic pups. Additionally, children can tap into their creative sides by making their own “Giant About Me Paw Poster,” an activity that is as educational as it is enjoyable.

The fun doesn’t stop there; attendees also have the chance to win in a special summer giveaway. Activities are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis and are available while supplies last, ensuring each event is packed with excitement and new experiences.

On July 24, the festivities continue with the “Under The Sea Splash.” This event will allow children to snap photos with a friendly mermaid and create their own shell necklaces. DJ Funergy will be back to set the mood with more lively music, ensuring the splash pad is the coolest place to be this summer.

Beyond the splash pad fun, Desert Ridge Marketplace is enhancing the experience with exclusive lunch deals available weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. These offers are perfect for families looking to turn a morning of splash pad fun into an afternoon of shopping and dining. More details and coupons for these offers are available on the Desert Ridge Marketplace website.

District Splash Days are free and open to the public, providing an excellent option for summer entertainment. Attendees are reminded to come prepared for the sun with water, sunscreen, bathing suits, and water shoes to make the most out of their splash pad adventure.
