Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and a couple of area water parks are ready to kick off their season. Both Raging Rivers Water Park in Grafton and the Wood River Aquatic Center open Saturday.
This will be the 27th season for Raging Rivers. General Manager Donna Smith tells The Big Z the big draw is still the largest attraction:
Wood River Park & Recreation Director Jason Woody tells The Big Z the water temperature at the Aquatic Center is in the mid-60's, but should warm quickly.
Woody says the private parties are already starting to fill out their schedule. That was a popular addition to their offerings last year, according to Woody.
