The rain held off for most of the day Wednesday giving the Wapakoneta Noon Optimist Club an ideal day for their first annual Carnival at the Wapakoneta WaterPark.
From noon to 7 p.m. yesterday patrons of the WaterPark were able to enjoy the luxuries of the pool while also having the chance to play games, win prizes and receive “goody bags”.
Bonnie Wurst, Noon Optimist Club member, said the event was aimed toward the children in the community and was an activity meant as a community service.
“Last year the pool sponsored some special days, and they didn’t have the funds to do it this year,” Wurst said. “So our Noon Optimist Club did it as a community service activity.”
