Some metro families made the most of the holiday and the fine weather Thursday opting for a swim at their local pools.
Holiday Aquatic Center offered a special $3 admission price.
One family we met had their day filled with 4th of July events. First it was a parade, then to the pool, a barbeque dinner and then on to the fireworks at Colby Park.
Jennifer church says she wanted to make the most of the day, “Fourth of July is a chance to honor our veterans, enjoy life and our family and friends.”
Both West Des Moines aquatic centers offered the special $3 admission throughout the day.
