Water Draws A Crowd

Some people know how tho throw an event and draw a crowd. The Potomac Yards folks did that yesterday. Splash Yards, with a water slide, inflatable balls to roll inside and a surf board to ride the wave, drew hundreds into a parking lot. With drinks and tubs for soaking or getting water to toss on people, the event was a great success.

This was a great way to bring men and women in their 20s and 3os into the neighborhood to see the environment and maybe become interested in renting or buying a condo or apartment.

The event started at 2 and the line was around the block. Fortunately, if you didn’t want to drink, you could walk right in and not wait long in the line. Like an amusement park, there were lines to get on any of the rides. Still, we rode the plastic slide several times and the quick steep drop made it a blast.

The surf board proved a bit of a challenge but was good fun.

The organizers were less successful with the inflatable balls; or what someone on line called, hamster balls. The line hardly moved and after 45 minutes of waiting we gave up on it. This was a big disappointment!
