Wave Pool Wednesday Promotes Boys Town Texas

Boys Town Texas has​ partnered with Splashtown San Antonio to help raise awareness of child abuse prevention and to inform on and recruit families for the services Boys Town Texas has to offer through an event called Wave Pool Wednesday.

Romeo Cruz, Common Sense Parenting Supervisor, has been a disc jockey at Splashtown San Antonio for the past four years, and after a discussion with the water park's vice president, they concluded that Boys Town Texas would be an exceptional partnership to have.

“Music is incredibly powerful in the impact it can have on a person’s mood and behavior,” Cruz said. “Most families that attend musical events and theme parks are looking to connect more with their own family. By combining music and the need to bond, families are more receptive to learning what Boys Town has to offer.”

The goal of the event is centered on Boys Town’s mission to help children and their families. However, the focus is on the music and the water park experience that brings them closer together. Additionally, the event serves as an opportunity to make families aware of Boys Town’s parenting classes, in-home services and foster care.

Wave Pool Wednesdays takes place every Wednesday throughout the summer from 12 - 4 p.m. The event offers plenty of games, prizes, information for parents and a music series with DJ Dr. Cruz.

Splashtown San Antonio offers more than 50 rides and attractions, including a wave pool, lazy river, 14 full-sized waterslides, a basketball court, sand volleyball courts and more.

The event is in its sixth week and Boys Town Texas has already seen a great response from attendants.
