Aquacade – a yearly tradition in Westacres.
2023 Schedule of Events – Click HERE
Since its inception in 1939, immensely creative parades, fierce competition, and the casualties of participation – those weekend warriors with sprained ankles and torn ligaments – are the constants of our revered Aquacade weekend. The tradition brings us together like no other, many holding on until Sunday’s darkness consumes the beach, where several families can be seen playing cards, chatting about “highlight” moments, and calling up a beach-side delivery dinner.
While the excitement officially begins with SPIRIT WEEK – starting July 31st – official events commence with the CORN ROAST Friday night, August 4th. This not-to-miss event brings together both sides – the North and the South – for a non-partisan celebration of friends, family and neighborhood spirit.
The ADULT DANCE Saturday night is $10 per person for members in good standing if purchased before July 31st, and $15 after and at the door; $15 for guests in advance; $20 at the door. The clubhouse opens at 7:30 p.m. and food will start 30 minutes after the completion of the last soft ball game.
SUNDAY, August 6th is Beach Day starting at noon. The SWIMMING EVENTS begin with our youngest residents sliding on the slide, then the non-redcap events, followed by free style, back stroke, breast stroke, under-water breath swim and the diving competitions. There is an ongoing Sand Castle Contest throughout the day for all ages.
Come hungry for the homemade selections from the Women’s Club Food Booth (opens @ noon) + Candy Ladies’ Treats.
At the end of Sunday, points are tallied and bragging rights awarded – along with the coveted Westacres Cup. Exhausted participants head home – some elated, some deflated – all knowing it truly doesn’t matter if you’re Red or Green, North or South. We’re all WESTACRES.
