A few thousand children got soaked with suds and water Wednesday during the annual Splash Bash Water Party as part of Saratoga Springs' Splash Days, according to Corrine Prestwich, assistant civic events coordinator with the city of Saratoga Springs.

“Our splash bash is one of the highlights of our splash days,” she said.

The Saratoga Springs Fire Department held a foam-zone for younger kids, and also sprayed their fire truck's hose into the air to douse older children, all the while others took part in water-gun fights. Water-ballon launches, provided by the local Kiwanis Club, as well as water slides added to the wet fun.

“We get a lot of great community support from our youth council and volunteers that really make it happen and keep all the kids safe,” explained Prestwich.
