Preparations underway for Friday grand opening of Splash Pad

From Tiffany Collins

Master Magician Lance Burton and Miss Adair County Fair MacKenzie Bennett have been rehearsing for the Grand Opening of the Splash Pad planned for Friday, August 25, 2023. The event will start at 11amCT at the City Park on Fairgrounds Street, Columbia, KY. The ribbon-cutting is scheduled for NoonCT.

Lance Burton will be performing a magic immediately after the ribbon cutting. He promises something for kids and adults alike.

"I am very very fortunate that Mayor Pam Hoots asked me to take part in the Grand Opening. Magic appeals to all age groups. I hope everyone will come out on Friday to see the show and see the amazing new addition to the park."

Grand Opening events will include: shirts for children as long as supplies last, snow cones, popcorn, cotton candy, school supplies, and more. Members of the Adair County Family Resource Center and the new school superintendent are planning to be there.


There will be around twenty displays through the park. The Mark Twain Shriners Club will be having hamburgers and hot dogs for the children. They are also supplying inflatables and a train for children that day.

There will be two food trucks at the Grand Opening: Happy Hawg Barbeque and Luxe Lemon.

"We are so excited to have this event in our community," stated Mayor Pamela Hoots.

Numerous businesses, organizations, and individuals are sponsoring the event. Water is going to be provided by Bank of Columbia.

The city would like to extend their appreciation to the Adair County Extension Office for providing additional parking for the event on Friday. There will be some parking available at the park. We encourage people to come early to get spaces.
