Fauquier County Parks & Rec hosted the fifth annual Splash and Slide event at the Warrenton Community Center Saturday afternoon. Local children – and a few adults – took great pleasure in sliding down the hill near the playground on plastic sheets covered with soapy water. There was also a bouncy slide, and the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company sprayed its hose, just for fun.
Parks & Rec employee Ray Graham said that in addition to the fire department, Sheetz, Pepsi and Deer Meadow Farm in Catlett provided supplies, and Warrenton United Methodist Church volunteers were on hand to help keep everyone safe.
