Due to the rainy, cool weather this past Sunday, Palmerton Memorial Pool's annual Carnival Day has been postponed until this Thursday.

The event will include free pony rides from 2-4 p.m., free moon bounce, and for a small fee, a dunk tank, where you can take a chance to dunk some of the pool staff.

Hot dogs will be available for a small fee. There will also be various refreshment stand deals available through the day.

The board of directors of the pool are providing a decreased daily admission to the pool for the remainder of the season.

Anyone entering the pool that pays daily admission for the rest of this season will pay a reduced fee.

Pool closing time is at 7 p.m. When Palmerton Area School District opens, the pool hours Monday through Friday are 3-7 p.m. Hours remain the same on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, from 1-7 p.m. On Monday, Sept. 2 (Labor Day), the pool will open at noon.

The Palmerton Pool is grateful to Pool Pals for sponsoring the special event days held annually at the pool.

Anyone who would like to contribute to the Pool Pals Chinese auction held at the upcoming Palmerton Community Festival may inquire at the pool office for details by calling (610) 826-5357, or Larry at (610) 349-1085.
