The 11th Annual Purely Ponds Parade of Ponds Charity Pond Tour
The 11th Annual Purely Ponds Parade of Ponds charity pond and waterfall tour was a great success! It was held Saturday and Sunday June 24th and 25th, 2017. The parade route consisted of 23 residential and commercial stops throughout Colorado Springs, Monument, Larkspur, Falcon and Pueblo. Pond and waterfall spectators enjoyed viewing beautiful under a pleasant and much welcomed cooler cloud cover along with some sun. Ponds of various sizes and shapes were showcased along with many trendy pondless waterfalls, streams, spring fountains and basalt stone columns. These ecologically balanced waterscapes offered an experience in tranquility and soothing sounds of the water with a peaceful panorama of the naturalistic water gardens. The people have voted and the 2017 Purely Ponds Parade of Ponds People’s Choice winner is tour stop #4, The Copperfield Pond. This gorgeous water garden starts with a 70’ long stream winding through an upper pool and beautifully flowering landscape into a 16’ x 11’ pond full of Koi and goldfish. This award winning feature was installed in 2007 and is powered by a 4500 gallon per hour pump. The Copperfield Pond was also the 2016 People’s Choice winner. Congratulations again to Melody & Gaines!
The Parade of Ponds was held in honor of the local charity for our youth, The Boys & Girls Club of the Pikes Peak Region. Tickets were sold for $5 each with a matching donation from Purely Ponds. Purely Ponds generated and proudly donated $2500 this year to this great charity. The Boys & Girls Club mission is simple: To inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Building character through everyday leadership and guidance in behavior and attitude, the professional staff provides nationally recognized programs that help young people succeed in school, stay healthy, learn important life skills, pursue interests in the arts and sports and explore vocational choices. The Boys & Girls Club is a remarkable organization in our community.
Thank you to all who supported and participated in the 11th Annual Purely Ponds Parade of Ponds to make this year another successful charity event. Please make plans to attend the Parade of Ponds again next year on the last weekend in June.
