Pirates, Splashtown Coming to Kennesaw’s Swift-Cantrell Park

SplashtownThe City of Kennesaw is serving up a double feature of summer entertainment on Saturday, June 1 with water-themed activities followed by the second free outdoor movie in the summer series at Swift-Cantrell Park.

The excitement begins at 6 p.m., as the sun-soaked “shores” of the park become a watery playground of splishing, splashing, slipping and sliding fun. Activities will feature both free and pay-to-play inflatable slides, field games and attractions. After the sun goes down, set sail for a fun-filled pirate adventure with a screening of The Pirates! Band of Misfits. The 2012 stop-motion animated adventure comedy follows the Pirate Captain and his crew of amateur pirates as they attempt to win the Pirate of the Year competition. The movie is rated PG, and features the voices of Hugh Grant and Jeremy Piven.

Movie goers are invited to bring a blanket or low-back chairs. Pop-up tents, canopies or beach umbrellas that can obstruct the view of others are not permitted. Concessions will be available for purchase.

Children participating in water activities should arrive dressed to get wet. An extra change of clothing, towel and dry shoes is recommended. Restrooms will be available; showers and changing rooms are not.

Swift-Cantrell Park is located at 3140 Old 41 Highway.  Parking is available inside the park and at neighboring Kennesaw Elementary School. Cancellations may occur due to weather conditions.
