Only three weeks left in the 2021 Summer Season at Kent Gardens, and we have lots going on to keep you entertained!! Here is a reminder of all the great events coming up and the schedule for our final weeks.
Wine & Beer Tasting: Saturday, 8/21
Adult Night is back next Saturday! The Wine Outlet, a local McLean business, is offering a wine and beer tasting from 7-9pm. Bring your own dinner (and other beverages), relax and enjoy some time by the pool with friends and neighbors. This event is 21 and over so the pool will close to anyone under 21 at 7pm.
Cardboard Boat Race: Sunday, 8/29
We’re getting ready for our First Annual KGRC Cardboard Regatta on Sunday the 29th, at 2pm. The competition will be fierce- and fun- as members compete on the water.
Teams should build their own cardboard boat and show off their nautical skills not only with the fastest ships and clever designs, but themes and even costumes are highly encouraged!! Don’t be daunted… this is all for fun and silliness is completely acceptable!
The full set of Regatta Rules are on the KGRC website. All competitors should register for the race by next Sunday by signing up at the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0C45A5AF29A3FD0-kgrc
Please include sailors’ names, ages and team name. Yes, there will be prizes!
It should be a fun afternoon so plan to watch and cheer. Want to help judge? Email Caryn at [email protected]. (The regatta rain date is 9/5.)
Labor Day Fun: Monday, 9/6
Our final day at the pool is Labor Day (9/6). Let’s celebrate a great season with one more party! Come join the festivities from Noon-3pm as we have games, music and special treats for everyone. Bring your baggies! The Coin Toss is back! The pool will close at 6pm.
Doggy Paddle: Monday, 9/6
Let your four-legged family members know, it’s almost time! The return of Dog Swim will be after closing on Labor Day. Bring your pup from 6:30-7:30 to jump in and splash around. Just like any dog activity, we ask that you make sure your dog plays well with others and is fully vaccinated in order to join. (Please also fill out this form and bring along with your dog.)
