Easley Water Blast moved to Aug. 31

EASLEY — Inclement weather forced city of Easley officials to postpone the city’s Back-to-School Water Blast on Saturday.

The event is now rescheduled for noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31, in Old Market Square downtown.

As in years past, the wet-and-wild extravaganza includes inflatable water rides (bouncers), volleyball, sandboxes, games, food and drinks, music and tons of fun.

Water rides are ticketed. Each ride requires one ticket. Tickets will sell for $1 per ticket, while six tickets will be available for $5 or visitors can purchase a wristband for unlimited rides for a cost of $10.

Easley’s 2013 Back to School Water Blast is sponsored by the City of Easley, the Gilstrap Family Dealerships and the Pickens County YMCA.
