Professionally produced by HDE Agency, this year’s Chandler Summer Splash & Dash is gearing up to be bigger and better than ever with more splashing fun activities, food, live entertainment and the country’s most elite high school sprinters competing in the Arizona Sprints Showcase.
The Chandler Summer Splash & Dash will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2012 from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in downtown Chandler at the Dr. AJ Chandler Park (west). This is a family friendly event and admission is FREE.
One of the newest additions to this year’s event is live entertainment provided by Radio Disney Rockin’ Road Show from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. The Radio Disney Road Crew will keep the party hopping with music, interactive games and prizes all centered on family friendly fun.
As the weather heats up, the kiddos will enjoy more than 20 water activities include slides, games, swimming pools, swimming lessons and safety tips, misters, dunk tanks, bounce houses, water balloon battles, carnival style games, cyber maze water tag and a special area designated just for toddlers and preschool aged children.
Once they’ve worked up an appetite from all that fun, take a break in the shade and enjoy a summer treat from one of our many vendors offering shaved ice, frozen lemonade, cotton candy, nachos, hot dogs, ice cream and more.
As announced earlier this month, the Phoenix Regional Sports Commission will host their annual Arizona Sprints Showcase, an event featuring the country’s elite high school sprinters from each state at Chandler High School on June 23-24, 2012. This sporting event is expected to attract participants, supporters and spectators from across the country and with the Chandler Summer Splash & Dash taking place right before the Arizona Sprints Showcase; this will be a great way for out of area visitors to enjoy all of the fun in the sun that Chandler has to offer.
“Chandler is known for fostering collaboration and partnerships, and this is an excellent example of a situation in which everyone wins,” said Chandler Mayor, Jay Tibshraeny, “The Arizona Sprints Showcase will bring new people to Chandler and give our businesses the opportunity to show off everything that makes our downtown unique.”
