Family Night returns with All Star Sports night

Austin Hill, Michaela Curry, Savaanah Shoaf, Sapphyra Pilkington, Cheyenne Satterly, Erin Kearse, Sheridan Pressley, Brooklyn Galyean, Taylor Galyean, Leann Wait, Lindsey Wells and Recreation Park Director Brandon Taylor stand in front of Cinderella's castle at last week's Disney themed Family night.

Family nights at the Canton pool are a little more fun now as the staff features a new theme every week.

Last week's theme was Disney. With music from Disney's A Little Mermaid playing in the background, it was clear the children waiting at the gate couldn't wait to get into the pool.

Recreation park staff took time to make the night as fun as possible by drawing and coloring a giant Cinderella's castle for kids to use as a photo booth. The area near the diving board was decorated like Pride Rock from the Lion King and the picnic shed was decorated with swinging vines from Tarzan.

It's a great way to attract more people and be interactive with the kids at the pool, said Erin Kearse, manager at the pool. The pool staff each dressed as a different Disney character and organized games to play with the kids.

Family night is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. every Thursday. This week's theme will be all star sports night, followed by safari night and a back to school bash in the upcoming weeks. Admission in $2 per person.
