The week-long summer event was sponsored by Experience El Dorado, the YMCA and HF Sinclair and offered fun for the whole family.
“We had a great turnout for our events and are pleased with how this first Kids Week went,” said Javan Gonzalez, Destination Services Coordinator with the City of El Dorado’s Experience El Dorado.
“Movie Monday” was held at Central 6 Cinema with a free showing of “Minions: The Rise Of Gru.”
“Baseball Tuesday” was at McDonald Stadium with a game between the El Dorado Walnuts versus the Winfield Moos and included games and activities.
“Swim Wednesday” offered a welcomed break from the heat with free swimming at the El Dorado Municipal Pool.
“Museum Thursday” at the Butler County Historical Society Home of the Kansas Oil Museum included a host of educational activities.
“Friday Night Lights” rounded out the week at North Main Park with fun games and activities including the Splash Pads.
“We couldn’t have provided all of these great, free events without the help and generosity of our partners, HF Sinclair and the YMCA,” said Gonzalez. “They were great to work with and helped put on a wonderful week for the kids in El Dorado. We want to thank everyone who volunteered, donated and attended the events.”
