Spashpad opens

Considering the circumstances, it couldn’t have happened during a more appropriate time.

To the delight of local children, the splashpad at the new Davie County Community Park opened last week – on the same days temperatures started soaring into the 90s.

Because the number of visitors allowed in the pad at a time, pre-registration is required. Visit www.daviecounty.nc.gov/dcrp, or call 336-753-8326 to register for time in the two-hour slots. Admission is $1 for children and $2 for adults.

Pre-registration for the drive-in style movies that start Friday evening is also required, at $5 per vehicle. Friday’s movie, starting at dusk, is Frozen II. Spaces for vehicles will be marked on either side of the double-sided screen. Sound will be on an FM radio station. Those attending are asked to stay in their vehicles.

Gates open at 7 p.m. for the movie, off US 601
South at the site of the old Davie County High School in Mocksville.

Future movies will be Wonder Park on July 31, The Lion King on Aug. 14, and The Secret Life of Pets 2 on Aug. 21.
