[ARCHIVED] City announces Labor Day service changes; Flash Flood closes 9/5

Labor Day

With Labor Day next Monday, Sept. 6, Full Blast Recreation Center will transition to the fall/winter schedule.

The last day to enjoy Flash Flood Water Park is Sunday, Sept. 5, from noon-6 p.m. While the park typically stays open through the Labor Day holiday, ongoing staffing issues require us to close a day early.

However, Flash Flood still will host the 2021 Puppy Plunge on Saturday, Sept. 11. Visit to sign up. Click Register Now! on the left side of the page.

Full Blast and the fitness center will be closed Thursday, Sept. 2 through Monday, Sept. 6 for gym floor refinishing and the Labor Day holiday. When we reopen on Tuesday, Sept. 7, winter hours are in effect: 7 a.m.-8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekends.

Upcoming Recreation programs are also available at

Please note that all city offices are closed on Monday, Sept. 6 for the Labor Day holiday. We will resume the same limited hours on Tuesday, Sept. 7 – generally 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m.-noon Friday. This will continue while the COVID-19 virus transmission tracks high in Calhoun County.
