District 3 Councilmember Dennis Kavanaugh will host his annual Pancakes and Surfing Family Fun Day from 9 a.m. to noon on April 27 at the Rhodes Junior High School swimming pool, located at 1860 South Longmore. The Mesa Fire and Medical Department will be serving pancakes and the Mesa Hilton will also be providing snacks and refreshments.
The FlowRider, a wave pool that is a cross between skateboarding, snowboarding and wakeboarding, will be open for attendees to experience free of charge. Riders will be on a first come, first served basis and must have a signed waiver and watch a short safety video before riding. The Rhodes Junior High swimming pool and Splash Pad will also be open to all attendees and the Mesa Fire and Medical Department will be putting on a water safety clinic.
“Every year I look forward to hosting this event,” Councilmember Kavanaugh said. “It gives our neighbors a chance to meet one another, enjoy the fabulous Rhodes Junior High Aquatics Complex and get information from the City of Mesa.”
The Mesa Fire and Medical Department will have the historic Mesa Fire Truck at the event, and children will have the opportunity to look inside a Mesa Police cruiser and an ambulance. Attendees can also enter to win passes to the FlowRider.
