HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- Early afternoon showers couldn't dampen the enthusiasm of children and families at the inaugural Patriotic Pool Parade at the Hasbrouck Heights Swim Club on Wednesday afternoon.

Children and parents wore patriotic bathing suits, shorts, and tops for the event. Children sported red, white, and blue accessories like sunglasses, leis, scarves, hats, necklaces, and other accessories to complete the look.

Lifeguard Lauren Cappadona helped lead the children in a two-lap parade around the pool's new deck. Each child received a prize for participating.

Event coordinator Jodi Bernet said they want to "bring activities to the pool," for the children, not just swimming. She explained there are several upcoming events including Du Wop Night, Halloween at the Pool, a Luau, a cornhole league and Olympics Week. 

Earlier the pool and grounds were cleared as storms rolled in and the lightning detector went off at Depken Field.
