It’s a hot one this weekend, which is not surprising because August arrives Monday. Only a little more than two weeks before school starts for many children of the Santa Clarita Valley.

SCV Water Festival

I understand that Martin Rodriguez of Prospect Mortgage and a board member of Single Mothers Outreach is the brainchild behind this unique fundraiser.

What a great way to spend one of the last weekends before the kids head back to school. Tickets are only $15 each for adults and $7.50 for kids. A family four-pack, two adults and two kids is only $40.

The event will be held 4-10 p.m. Saturday at the Santa Clarita Aquatics Center. Don’t miss this fun family outing that also benefits the important work of Single Mothers Outreach.

The event will feature live music, games, food and a dive-in movie.

The ninth annual Rubber Ducky Festival is set for Oct. 22 at Castaic Lake. The fun-filled family festival will culminate in a rubber duck race at 1 p.m.

Rubber ducks are available for adoption now at $5 per duck, making the event affordable for everyone. Other adoption opportunities include: Quack Family (five ducks plus a free duck for $25); Quacker’s Dozen (10 ducks plus two free ducks for $50) and Duck Flock (20 ducks plus four free ducks for $100).
