Cape Splash Family Aquatic Center experienced one of it’s most successful opening weekends last week after having recovered from a February fire on their water pump house.

On the morning of Feb. 3, Cape Girardeau fire chief Rick Ennis spotted unusual smoke coming from the Cape Splash pump house while traveling on Kingshighway. By the time the fire department had arrived at the scene, the fire and smoke had already done most of the damage, costing nearly $750,000.

The annual regatta benefits various therapeutic programs in the Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department, and the Special Olympics.
