Fort Smith, AR (June 30, 2017) — First Responders come first at Parrot Island Waterpark on July 9, 2017, as the waterpark plans to honor and appreciate them and all they do for the community with its 2nd Annual First Responders Day.

Parrot Island Waterpark will greet every first responder with free admission and half-price tickets for all of their immediate family members, as well as a voucher for the Island Breeze snack shop courtesy of the waterpark. Once inside, the highlight of the day will be The Parrot Games, which will feature First Responders teaming up and competing throughout the day for a variety of fabulous prizes donated by businesses across the community, including a recliner, restaurant gift cards, Parrot Island passes, and more.

As the events conclude, an awards ceremony will recognize the winner of the games with the Champions’ Parrot Cup, and acknowledge all those who participated.

“We have been looking forward to this event since we started the season,” said Bill Miller, General Manager at Parrot Island Waterpark. “Our staff and community are proud to honor the First Responders in our city and in surrounding areas.”

Parrot Island Waterpark is planning numerous special events this summer to celebrate the community including Military and Teacher Appreciation Day.
