Fire Hydrant Party
The City's Recreation Department is pairing up with the Pierre Fire Department to help the community stay cool this summer. Every Tuesday evening in July, the two departments will host neighborhood fire hydrant parties.

Mindy Cheap, City Recreation Superintendent, says that the fire hydrant parties are new to the summer recreation line-up this year.

"We're always looking to try something new and different," said Cheap. "With the COVID cloud hanging over all us, we really wanted to come up with something the whole family could look forward to."

Fire Chief Ian Paul says that the Fire Department will be supplying oversized sprinklers.

"We'll actually hook our fire trucks up to the hydrants and run the water through our hoses, essentially making a giant sprinkler," said Paul.

The giant sprinklers aren't the only attraction. There will also be water balloons, super soakers, and popsicles to keep participants cool.

Cheap says that registration isn't necessary. 

"Just come to the party closest to your neighborhood!"

Pierre Players presents Native Gardens
Gardens and cultures clash, turning friendly neighbors into feuding enemies in this hilarious comedy of good intentions and bad manners. Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to community stalwarts Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all-out war of taste, class, privilege and entitlement. The hilarious results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose. **Social Distancing will be observed and masks will be required in the lobby area. Tickets must be reserved in advance.

2020 has made everything look a little different. This year we have reimagined our annual We Love Kids Party with a fun NEW twist...INTRODUCING: We Love Kids Party DRIVE-THRU!! Join us Saturday, August 8th from 10am - 1pm for a fun family giveaway, SNOW CONES, window washing, fun family car photo, and the opportunity to make an appointment for FREE shoes for elementary students later in the week. Instead of taking shoe donations this year, we would like to ask for financial donations so that we may purchase shoes in the specific sizes we need. Also, as we are looking for volunteers, please let us know how YOU would like to help out with the We Love Kids Party this year!! If you are unavailable on August 8th for the Drive-Thru event, there will be opportunities to volunteer in the weeks after for the shoe fitting appointments.
