Ocean Pines Aquatics will be offering a way to escape cold winter weather and enjoy the summer-like temperatures of the indoor Sports Core Pool at special activities that celebrate the joy of the season.
On Dec. 6, pool guests can meet Elsa and Anna from “Frozen” and then watch the movie on an inflatable screen while splashing and swimming or floating on inflatable rafts in the heated indoor pool. The character meet-and-greet will begin at 5 p.m. with the movie following at 6 p.m. Popcorn will be for sale and pre-registration is required. The cost is $3 for Ocean Pines swim members, $5 for Ocean Pines residents and $7 for non-residents. Families of more than four may pay a flat rate of $20.
On Dec. 13 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., Santa Claus will return to the Sports Core Pool for the seventh annual Swim with Santa. Guests are invited to splash in the pool with Santa, who will be decked out in swim trunks and flip flops. Donations of toys, books and puzzles will also be accepted on behalf of Believe in Tomorrow House by the Sea and Home of the Brave. The cost of the event is $6 for swimmers and $3 for non-swimmers.
Ocean Pines Aquatics hosts a variety of aquatic fitness classes, swim lessons and special events year-round. Upcoming events include a one-day Winter Junior Lifeguard Program on Dec. 30, Friday Family Fun Night on Jan. 2 and an adults-only Dive-In Movie Night showing of “The Big Chill” on Jan. 10.
