The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Rend Lake is hosting the annual Beach Blast at South Sandusky Beach from 12:00 to 4:00 pm on Saturday May 26th, 2018. Join Park Rangers for a day of safety and fun in the sun. Beach Blast includes a visit from the Air-Evac helicopter and crew, fire safety trailer, beach games, music, and an appearance by Bobber the Water Safety Dog! Thanks to our local emergency response personnel who will be on site for other fun hands-on activities. Abbott-EMS will display their ambulance and refresh you on CPR skills, Benton/West City Fire Department will have the interactive fire safety trailer, Sesser Fire Department will give participants a tour of their fire truck, and guests will have the opportunity to look inside the Air-Evac helicopter as it will be landing at 1:00pm! This will be a day of fun for all ages and a blast for everyone!
Day use fees at South Sandusky Beach are waived for Beach Blast, so this event is free and open to the public. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen, snacks, and join us for some family fun!
