ARKADELPHIA — Celebrate the end of summer with friends and family at Parks and Recreation’s “End of Summer Blowout!” Saturday, August 13, from 5-9 p.m. at Feaster Park.

A free event, the End of Summer Blowout! will feature a variety of bounce houses, obstacle courses, a rock wall, miniature golf course, outdoor games, face painting, food trucks and extended pool hours. The night will end with a 15-minute fireworks show by Interstate Fireworks.

“We wanted to do something special for our kids and families to end the summer with a bang, and what better way to do that than with an awesome fireworks show?” Parks and Recreation director Junior Rodemeyer said.

The fireworks show will begin at 8:45 p.m. Attendees are invited to watch from Southwest Auto Collection Field. The bounce houses, obstacle courses and other event attractions will be open from 5-9 p.m.

The End of Summer Blowout! will also feature extended pool hours, sponsored by Southwest Auto Collection. The Aquatic Park will remain open from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, August 13, as part of the End of Summer Blowout! General admission will still be charged during the extended hours.

This event is being sponsored by Southwest Auto Collection. A fixture in the community, Southwest Auto Collection also serves as the department’s platinum youth athletic sponsor.

“Southwest Auto Collection is a phenomenal sponsor to work with,” Rodemeyer said. “They are hands-on when it comes to supporting our youth athletic programs, and have thrown themselves into assisting with this event. To say we appreciate their support would be a massive understatement.”

Details regarding the End of Summer Blowout! will be shared on the City of Arkadelphia’s social media channels in the weeks leading up to the event. Visit to learn more.
