The weather is hot, but Tempe Marketplace will keep things cool for kids starting Thursday, June 6 and occurring every Thursday in June 4-August 1, excluding July 4. Summer Splash lets kids get up close and personal with their favorite princess or superhero.


Kids of all ages will enjoy FREE entertainment, music, dancing, prizes, and of course an opportunity to cool down at the splash pad. Families will also have the chance to snap a FREE downloadable photo with the featured weekly character. Plus, spend $20 or more at the restaurant of the week (Tempe Marketplace location only) and skip the photo line!
