Inflatable water slides added to plans for Festival of America


A new feature for the July 4 Festival of America celebration will be a number of inflatable water slides in a water park.

The Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce, sponsors of the event, stated that Jump N2 Fun, from Post Falls, Idaho, will bring a number of inflatable water slides for a two-day show, July 3 and 4 in the Visitor Center park at Grand Coulee Dam.

Michael Hunt, who provided nine inflatables for the Colorama event, said that he was looking forward to returning to the coulee area.

For Hunt and his wife, Julie, the event will entail more than pumping up some inflatables. “We will also be celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary,” he stated. The couple was married on July 4.

The two-day venue will be at the park below the Visitor Center. The inflatables will be operational at 10 a.m. Sunday, running until 8 p.m. On Monday, July 4, the inflatable splash program will run from 10 a.m. -6 p.m.

Included in the inflatable water features Hunt will bring will be one with a splash pool, a four-way teeter totter under a sprayer, and lots more designed to cool off the crowd.

Advance ticket sales for the inflatable water slides are sale now at the Trading Post near Nespelem, H&H Grocery, The Star newspaper, the chamber of commerce office, Coulee Hardware and the Coulee Dam Federal Credit Union.

Advance tickets cost $30, good for the entire day. A rate of $5 for 25 minutes will be available at the gate.
