(Colorado Springs, CO) It's toasty warm in Colorado Springs right now. To help beat the heat, grab the swimsuits, pile the kids in the car, and head to the park to cool down with some bubble-filled outdoor fun.
The Pikes Peak Library District will have two foam-filled events this week for children ages 2 through 12.
On Tuesday, July 12th, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., the foam machine will be spewing bubbles at the Deerfield Hills Community Center (4290 Deerfield Hills Road, Colorado Springs, 80916)
On Thursday, July 14th, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., kids can play in the bubbles at Meadows Park Community Center (1943 S. El Paso Ave, Colorado Springs, 80905)
It's time for a dance party in a huge bubble bath minus the water. The foam is biodegradable, hypo-allergenic soap, and cleans up quickly - the best type of messy fun!
