In honor of Father's Day, Erickson Pool offered free admission to any dad willing to brave the heat on Sunday.
Every year, Erickson invites area families to get out of the house and into the pool. Providing an opportunity for kids to spend an afternoon with their dads while creating more of a family atmosphere.
The special offer aims to help fathers forget about the stress from their weekly lives and focus on what matters most.
"A lot of dad's go to work, ya know, five days out of the week," City of La Crosse Aquatics Coordinator Stefanie Fitzsimmons continues, "...They're not always around to be in their kid's lives during that time, and so to have a day just dedicated to them spending time with their kids is what we're all about and trying to give them a space to be able to have fun, especially on a hot day like today when it's too hot to do much else except for go to a pool."
If you spent any time outside on Sunday you probably would have appreciated a pool too, with temperatures reaching upwards of 95 degrees.
