Splash Kingdom Waterpark presents ‘Christmas in July’ the week of July 14, 2014

(Shreveport, LA) – West Shreveport is going to be transformed into a Winter Wonderland come next week.  Splash Kingdom Waterpark at 7670 W. 70th Street in Shreveport is decking the halls and turning this summer getaway into a Christmas paradise.  From July 14 – July 20, 2014 at 11am daily the waterpark will have Christmas decorations on display, hourly snow falls and Christmas music playing on Splash Radio.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be stopping by the park to take pictures with children on July 14th and July 19th from 1pm-4pm.  On July 16th from 1pm-5pm a mermaid will swim in the wave pool.  A character from ‘Frozen’ will be at the park on July 17th from 1pm-3pm.  More activities will be planned throughout the week including cookie decorating with Half-Caked and visits from Macaroni Kid Shreveport-Bossier and HealthCARE Express Shreveport.

In conjunction with ‘Christmas in July’ Splash Kingdom will be having its Splash Out Hunger campaign.  For every (2) non-perishable food items donated a guest will receive a complimentary bottled water and be entered to win a pair of day tickets to the park.  All donated food items will go to The Hub Ministry’s food pantry.  Guests can also bring a new unwrapped toy for children up to age 12 to make a donation to ‘Operation Santa Claus’ on behalf of Splash Kingdom.  A drop-off box will be available all week.

“It’s so much fun for us to get into the spirit of Christmas during the summer.  We want area families to experience the joy of the holidays a little bit early and help us give to those in need through our food drive and ‘Operation Santa Claus’, says Sara Kleinecke, spokesperson Splash Kingdom Waterpark Shreveport.
