The Lubbock community is invited to attend the first annual Sun 'N Fun Festival on Aug. 16 at 6204 Elgin Avenue in Leftwich Park. The event is a fundraiser for the YWCA capital campaign to renovate the current Sun 'N Fun Facility. The Sun 'N Fun pool has been providing a safe and fun place for thousands of Lubbock children each year for the past fifty years.

The Sun 'N Fun Festival will kick-off with a 5K run/walk and a sand volleyball tournament. In addition, the event will mark this summer's opening day for the Sun 'N Fun pool. Other festival activities will include a live outdoor concert featuring Element, Jenni Dale Lord, Cash Taylor, Elliott Powell Band and The School of Rock. Plus lots of fun with swimming, games, bounce houses, a climbing wall, arts and crafts, and great summertime food!
