More than 60 people came to enjoy the water themed gathering. The event had local food vendors and summertime games.
People who live in the area said this event was important for everyone in the community.
“I know that any event they put on is going to be a lot of fun and so I like to do anything on the weekends that I can have with my kids,” Misty Amaya, a Longview resident who attended the event said. “I know this is going to be a great safe place where they’ll have fun and I can too.”
At the end of the bash, a color blast was held for children to enjoy
