Looking for a fun alternative to the average pumpkin patch picking? Join the Youth Advisory Commission (YAC) and the City of San Leandro Recreation and Human Services Department for our first Pumpkin Splash as we transform the San Leandro Boys and Girls Club pool into a floating pumpkin patch. Pumpkin Splash will take place on Friday, October 27th at the San Leandro Boys and Girls Club pool, located at 401 Manor Blvd, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Youth ages 5 to 17 will swim between 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Children under the age of 6 must be within an arm’s reach of an adult at all times. During swim time, each participant will choose a pumpkin to later decorate then take home to display. Fee for swimmers is $12.

 

This event is geared towards youth ages 5-17. Pre-registration is required. Register with the San Leandro Recreation and Human Services Department online at www.sanleandrorec.org, or walk in to the San Leandro Senior Community Center or Marina Community Center. Proceeds from this event will be used for the Youth Advisory Commission’s Mini-Grant Program and will be granted to youth serving organizations in the San Leandro Community.


This event is made possible by a generous donation from the San Leandro Optimist Club and San Leandro Smiles, Dr. Brent Sexton. For more information, contact Lydia Rodriguez, Recreation Supervisor at (510) 577-3477 or lrodriguez@sanleandro.org.
