Soon enough school will be out for summer and Summer Splash Tuesdays at Desert Ridge Marketplace, along with Summer Splash Thursdays at Tempe Marketplace can be enjoyed at both of Arizona’s premier shopping, dining and entertainment destinations. The entire family is invited to splish, splash and have some fun in the sun at FREE weekly events for the family to enjoy!

Starting weekly on Tuesday, June 7, parents can keep the kids busy between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. during the Desert Ridge Summer Splash Tuesdays with fun prizes and thrilling games and activities near the shopping center’s popular splash pad. Children can make their summer memorable by meeting their favorite characters ranging from Captain America, Batman and Superman to fairy princesses such as Elsa, Anna, Belle and Ariel.

During the 90-minute events, kids can enjoy music, dancing, games, prizes and of course playing in the splash pads to keep cool!

Another perk? Children will receive a free downloadable photo with the featured weekly character at both Summer Splash Tuesdays and Summer Splash Thursdays, however parents who attend the Desert Ridge Marketplace Summer Splash Tuesdays and share photos on social media using the hashtag #summersplashDRM, will be automatically entered to win a two-night stay at JW Marriott Desert Ridge, along with a 50-minute spa treatment to their Revive Spa. The winner will be randomly selected at the end of the event series.
