It’s time to celebrate summer in Carlsbad with the annual ALOHA PLUNGE.
The Aloha Plunge will take place in less than 3 weeks, on Saturday July 20 at the Alga Norte Community Park Aquatic Center, the site of multiple swim events during the year! Aloha Plunge begins at 5 pm and will end about 9 pm.
According to the registration website the Carlsbad Aloha Plunge is limited to 600 participants (but I also saw 1000 maximum listed). Whichever is correct, you should not wait as registrations are sure to go fast, at a cost of $10 per person. Children ages 3 and under FREE but they should be disclosed when you check-out online.
Don’t wait too long – register online now, and get your wrist bands so you don’t have to wait in line. You can pick up wrist bands at the Aquatics Center during normal business hours until the day of the event.
So, Carlsbad, bring your swimming suit and enjoy the Hawaiian-themed fun in the pool with activities like Hook It, Cannon Ball Crush, and Diving for Treasure. Challenge your talents with the water obstacles and the “Key Logs” to test out your balance and skills. Kids can enjoy a tropical bounce house on land, and the Splash Pad will be open for the younger children.
As at all events at the Aquatics Center, the Dive-In Grill will offer plenty of made-to-order food and drinks throughout the Aloha Plunge.
The Aloha Plunge will conclude with a 45 minute Polynesian Show where you can even learn how to hula if you want!
Alga Norte Community Park is one of Carlsbad’s favorite, and newest, parks with a host of features, including a terrific dog park, now open for several years. Stay tuned for more aquatic activities later this year!
