Splash Bash

The annual Splash Bash took place in  Palmerston Lion’s Heritage Park on June 27. The rain held off for the event and cooler temperatures didn’t stop the children from getting wet on the slip and slide set up by the Minto Fire department. Families came out to enjoy the free barbecue, spray-on tattoos, music, snacks, the splash pad and other events. TOP: Cora McMillen, 2, takes a ride down the slip and slide.
