BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) – Springfield Police gave parents and kids a chance to cool off and have fun.

Their 2nd annual Slide into Summer event had everything families needed all for free.

The event was canceled last week due to bad weather but was promptly rescheduled to Saturday, June 8.

Roughly 800 people were in attendance at Buddy Mclemore Park.

There were water slides, sno-cones and hotdogs, cornhole, and a live DJ to keep the party going.

Event organizer, Springfield Assistant Police Chief Russell Voyles said even though it’s only the 2nd year it has grown immensely since the first one.

“It’s nice being able to connect in a positive way with our community. A lot of times when citizens are interact with law enforcement, it’s a more negative manner, whether it be some tragedy in their life or they’re the subject of criminal investigation. This gives everybody to get together, have a good time, and put all that aside,” Springfield Assitant Police Chief Russell Voyles said.

Voyles says he hopes to have a similar event right before school the 2024-2025 school year starts. The City of Springfield Fire Rescue also played a part in setting up the event.
