But come this Saturday, taking a plunge at the pool takes on a whole new meaning.
The Kingsport Aquatic Center is hosting its 4th annual Pumpkin Plunge on Saturday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.,
Children ages 12 and younger are invited to plunge into the warm water pool and retrieve a pumpkin to decorate, participate in Halloween games and swim in the indoor pools.
Admission is $5 per person if you purchase your ticket in advance and $7 per person on the day of the event. Tickets can be purchased at the KAC front desk or online.
Everyone is welcome to swim during the Pumpkin Plunge Party with the entry fee, but only children ages 12 and younger will be allowed to decorate the pumpkins.
