Special Events and Marketing Manager for the city Niesha Whitman said Copper Sky members get in free.

“We really wanted to recognize people who are already members and give them something fun to do outside of our normal routine,” Whitman said.

Admission for non-members is affordable, Whitman said. Children 17-years-old and under are $2; Adults are $4 at the door.

During the end-of-summer event, a mix of music and swimming will be provided by the city.

“We are going to have a DJ who is going to do some interactive songs like the limbo and the chicken dance,” Whitman said.

While working up an appetite in the pool and on the dancefloor, Helen’s Kitchen will sell kids’ meals for $4 each and adult meals for $8.

Sunday is slated to be a trademark summer day for Maricopa. The National Weather Service forecasts the day of the party to be mostly sunny with a high of 106 degrees. Helen’s Kitchen will also provide a customizable snow cone bar at the event for $2.

“We will have all the different flavors available so the kids will be able to make their own,” Whitman said.
