Poowong loves pool party

THE Poowong outdoor pool held a night of family fun at the annual Australia Day eve pool party last Wednesday.

The pool has been hosting the event for the last three years and this year the YMCA took over the organising of the event from the local swimming club.

The event was a great chance for people to get in the Australia Day spirit a day early.

There were games of giant jenga, giant connect four, and knots and crosses and even a lolly scramble for the children at the shallow end of the pool.

The decades old inflatable toy Maurice also made an appearance at the pool and children repeatedly lined up for the chance to make it across the toy without falling off.

Local lifeguards watched over all the activities keeping everyone safe.

The lifeguards also fed the families with a classic Australian style barbecue.

The weather was perfect for the pool party and the day was a success for the Poowong outdoor pool.

Keeping cool: Coby and Zac Fowles from Korumburra beat the heat on Australia Day eve at the Poowong outdoor pool for the annual pool party.
