With the heat of the summer day slowly waning away, families from all around Ennis descended on Ennis Lions Club park Friday night.
It was an all American type evening – water slides, hamburgers, tie-dyed t-shirts, balloons, and enough kid-energy to power a rocket.
Here, Josey Blazer, 5, has her face painted at one of the booths. The barbecue was a community event intended to raise money and awareness for the aquatic center, which is still in the conceptual phase. More than 200 people attended the event.
