FLINT -- The Waterpark at The Villages will open its doors to the public today for a "Spook n' Splash" festival. Operations Manager Cathie Hayward said she hopes to have at least 200 to 300 people attend. "We just wanted to have a fall festival," she said. "We wanted to find a safe and fun place for the kids to come for Halloween." The water park will be open for swimming and festivities and will include carnival games, such as a pumpkin toss and a costume contest, Hayward said. She said they have different prizes for the costume contest, including gift cards, candy and T-shirts, and that the carnival booths will have candy so children can trick or treat. "No matter what the weather is, everyone's going to have a good time," said Kathy Thomas, spokeswoman for Silverleaf Resorts Inc. "The water park is something that people can enjoy all year round." Silverleaf Resorts, Inc. opened the $8 million water park back in January as the first indoor water park in East Texas. The 19,000-square-foot water park has many features including a lazy river, two double tube slides, two body slides, a children's playscape, and a wave pool. Admission for the "Spook n' Splash" festival is $5 per person and will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. at The Waterpark at The Villages, 18270 Singing Wood Lane on Lake Palestine.
