during Pumpkin Splash.
Swim with pumpkins from 6-8 p.m., Oct. 23, at The Water Works, 505 N. Springinsguth Road. The fun includes a DJ, refreshments and pumpkin decorating. “It’s really neat to see all the pumpkins floating in the pool at The Water Works,” said Kathleen Benson, Bock Neighborhood Center manager and general program supervisor. “You may swim around looking for your pumpkin.
