A great start to the summer with Southlake’s “Summer Kick Off”

The City of Southlake’s third annual Summer Kick Off was a huge success drawing an estimated crowd of 750. At the event, Southlake families were treated to live music from the Crawfish Band, free ice cream, balloon animals, bounce houses, and activities led by summer camp instructors and various City departments.

At the Kick Off, the Library’s booths bustled with activity as kids had their faces painted and signed up for the Library’s Summer Reading Club. The City’s Public Works department also taught families about water conservation and showcased a very popular “giant bubble” attraction.

While Southlake’s Planning and Development Services drew plenty of attention with their “What’s In A City” activity, the City’s Department of Public Safety offered children a stimulating opportunity to tour the fire engine truck. Southlake’s Community Services’ staff was also busy throughout the event, taking in a regular week’s worth of program registrations in only three hours.

Finally, a special thank you goes out to the following organizations for their crucial support to this year’s Summer Kick Off: Chick Fil-A, the Southlake Tennis Center, the Bob Jones Nature Center, Safe Haven of Tarrant County, Children’s Medical Center, Independent Pool/Spa Service Association, and All-Safe Pool Safety.
