Deluge Charleston 2015: An Epic Water Event Featuring Music, Food & Fun
6/7/2015 4:59:28 PM

The Charleston area is bracing for a DELUGE on Saturday June 20th at THE GROVE in Mt. Pleasant. This is America's largest water battle designed for adults and kids to settle some scores with good clean fun. Think water park meets "American Gladiators" or "Wipe Out " and you get the general idea. Looking for room to grow, the 3rd annual event is moving from the RiverDogs stadium to The Grove at Patriot’s Point to offer more water slides and running room.

According to event producer Rebecca Gosnell, “We loved being at the RiverDogs stadium last year and everyone had so much fun. It was a great mix of families and young adults who spent most of their time chasing each other around with water blasters and buckets of water. This year we want to take it up a notch with bigger water slides and “Wipe Out- Inspired games.”

Those games include giant slip and slide races, dashing through the gladiator guarded obstacle course and colliding in the human hamster balls. Over 300,000 gallons of water will stream from fire hoses, sprinkler systems and water slides, as people armed for battle with water blasters and water balloons turn back the summer heat. Perched high above the crowd in the DELUGE Towers, DJs and gladiators will set the tone for epic fun. The battle zones invite kids and parents to turn the tables and get even. Nothing could make Dad happier on Father’s Day weekend than to torture the kids with a super soaker.

Sponsored by Bud Light, MIX 96 and Crews Subaru of Charleston, this afternoon includes food trucks, beer wagons and water games for all ages. Bring a towel and dig out the super soaker gathering dust in the garage. Bag your cell phones or leave them behind. There will be dry zones but expect to get wet.

Dogs should stay home. Sunscreen, bathing suits and goggles are encouraged.

Like all events presented by GoCo Events, funds raised will help local charities. Everyone who makes a donation to the non-profits on site will receive free water balloons.

Tickets are $10 in advance through TicketFly. Tickets at the door are $15. Kids under 6 are free . Tickets included all the games, slides and activities. Food and Beverage sold separately. No coolers or outside food allowed.
