Parrot Island Waterpark celebrated the beginning of its third season on May 26 in style, as hundreds of Parrot Island patrons gathered to splash around and celebrate Parrot Island mascot Petey’s third birthday.
The party began at 1pm in the waterpark’s birthday pavilion, as Petey was joined by nine of his mascot friends from all around the community. Guests of the waterpark were treated to birthday cake and lemonade, and patrons who entered a drawing had the opportunity to win some of Petey’s presents, such as day passes, a birthday package, and other unique prizes. Visitors also posed for countless photos with Petey and his mascot friends.
“We were so excited to kick-off our best summer ever with Petey’s birthday bash!” said Brenda Payne, Director of Sales at Parrot Island Waterpark. “What a fun way to open the park for everyone and celebrate our favorite parrot!”
Parrot Island Waterpark is planning numerous special events this summer to celebrate the community, including First Responder’s Day, Military Appreciation Day, Teacher Appreciation Day, and many more.
