River Ridge Apartments Throw A Memorial Day Celebration

1st Lake’s apartment communities know how to show their residents a good time. This Memorial Day, two River Ridge apartment communities held their first annual event to celebrate this American holiday.

The Citrus Creek East and Citrus Creek West apartments in River Ridge held a joint Sprinkler Day for Memorial Day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sprinklers were set up on the communities’ tennis court area, and both children and adults enjoyed cooling off and playing games around the sprinklers on this hot and sunny afternoon. Citrus Creek also provided smaller sprinklers for the younger children, toddlers and babies to enjoy the cool mist. The older children had fun running through the larger sprinklers, and some brought their own water blasters and other toys to play with.

The adults enjoyed the cool sprinkler mist as well, plus a cherished Louisiana summertime tradition – snoballs! Cox Communications sponsored a snoball food truck called Sno 2 Geaux for the residents during Sprinkler Day. Nothing beats this icy sweet treat during a hot summer day. The snoballs were a wonderful surprise for the children and adults alike.

The event was such a hit, that 1st Lake will bring Sprinkler Day back again for a second year in 2014. If you enjoy great residential perks like these, consider being a member of a 1st Lake apartment community.
