The East Grand Forks Save Our Pool group is organizing a water carnival this week to raise money for the city’s public pool.
Thursday’s event will feature swimming, music, games, raffles, face-painting and a movie. Kids will also be able to dunk the greater Grand Forks mayors in a celebrity dunk tank.
The Save Our Pool group has been trying to raise money for more than a year to help pay for pool repairs and renovations that could cost as much as $6 million.
The water carnival will be from 6 to 11 p.m. at the East Grand Forks pool at 919 Fifth Ave. N.W. A movie will start at dusk. Wristbands to enter will cost $3.
All proceeds will go toward the Save Our Pool group.
