Third Street between H and Martin streets in Blaine will be transformed into a temporary spray park for two days this month.

City workers will connect hoses and various-sized nozzles to spray water into the air for folks to play from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5, and Friday, Aug. 12, said Michael Jones, community development director. Jones said several hundred people attended Splash Days last year.

Participants should bring a towel, a beach chair and shoes that can get wet. Rain cancels the events, but Friday’s forecast calls for partly sunny skies with highs in the low 70s.

Blaine-Birch Bay Park and Recreation District 2 and the Blaine Chamber of Commerce are co-sponsors, using a tourism grant to pay for water and staffing. The two events use about as much water as a typical household uses in a month, Jones said.
