On Our Radar: Play water games with local police on Port Coquitlam's Spray Day

Who knows, you might get the chance to dump buckets of water on some officers.

Well, the sun has been rather picky in which days it likes to make an appearance this summer.

But this week looks very promising.

Environment Canada is predicting temperatures to hover around 25 C in the Tri-Cities later this week, and just in time for Port Coquitlam's Spray Day.

The event is set to bring the community together for water games and activities while cooling off from the heat.

It's organized by the city in conjunction with Coquitlam RCMP, Metro Vancouver Transit Police (MVTP), Port Coquitlam Community Police and PoCo Fire Rescue.

Interested attendees are encouraged to bring water toys — such as supersoakers — sunscreen and towels, as well as buckets to potentially dump water on local first responders.

Water balloons are not allowed, organizers say.

A fire truck and police vehicle will also be on display for kids to see, as well as an informational booth for the general public.

Spray Day is scheduled for Friday (July 22) from 1 to 3 p.m. at the spray park at Terry Fox Hometown Square by the Port Coquitlam Community Centre.
