Wild Water Adventure Park in Clovis will host a Donation Day this weekend, aimed at assisting various nonprofit organizations around the Central Valley.
Donation Day will be held Saturday at the park, and despite attractions not opening until May 28, guests will be invited to participate in games, enjoy music and food trucks and more.
Local nonprofits including the Central California Blood Center, Marjaree Mason Center, Fresno Bully Rescue and more will be in attendance accepting donations ranging from blood donations to food, clothing and hygiene products.
“If the community comes together and they donate food, clothes, blood, books, hygiene products, or [donate] towards an animal shelter, they get a discount on our season passes that they can purchase that day,” said Hope Rodriguez, group and special events manager at Wild Water Adventure Park.
The event will host a Dippin’ Dots cart, Old Time Kettle Corn and Aguas Las Rancheritas, as well as carnival-style games provided through Fresno Fun Jump.
“The Park actually opens May 29, so [Donation Day] is almost like our two-week countdown that day,” Rodriguez said.
The park will be previewing its brand new attraction “The Green Mamba,” which is a drop-style ride featuring a loop, as well as a translucent tube allowing guests to see riders take the plunge.
Tickets will be offered at discounted rates for those in attendance, provided they donate to one of the organizations at the event. Season passes for attendees will be available for $69.99, a $40 discount from the $109.99 price after the start of the season.
“We wanted to get the community back together,” Rodriguez said. “After the past two years, everybody has kind of isolated themselves,” she said, adding that the park wants the community to be able to socialize and get together for a good cause.
