Parade of Ponds & Waterfalls

     The 15th Annual Purely Ponds Parade of Ponds charity pond and waterfall tour was a great success!  It was held Saturday and Sunday June 26th and 27th, 2021.  Although there was some rain on our parade, the community ventured out to enjoy the cooler air and welcomed the moisture.  Some rays of sunshine broke through the cloud cover illuminating these wonderful water features.  The parade route consisted of 16 residential and commercial stops throughout Colorado Springs, Monument and the surrounding area.  Ponds of various sizes and shapes were showcased along with many trendy pondless waterfalls, streams, and spring fountains.  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 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 $2,500 this year to this great charity.
