CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 26 .

Parking will be available at the duPont Hospital for Children on Rockland Road. The Best of Delaware Party brings together the winners of "Delaware Today" magazine's Best of Delaware Reader's Poll and Critic's Choice judging. The party, which attracted about 500 guests in 1989, now annually entertains close to 2,000 people. Last year's event raised nearly $94,000 for the March of Dimes. This year the party will cele- brate its 10th anniversary while showcasing more than 60 vendors. Killens Pond Water Park open to public Killens Pond Water Park, with something for the young and the young at heart, has opened for its second season. The water park provides an interactive water ex- perience with play apparatus dot- ted throughout the park. In the main pool, a giant mushroom has water cascading down its sides, a floating lily pad fun walk, lap lanes and more. The Children's Cove, located off to the side of the main pool, offers a safe place for kids under 12. The Cove has two pools. The first, a tot pool with zero depth en- try, features two large frog slides and can keep an active two-year- old busy for hours. The older chil- dren will enjoy the tot lot located in the Children's Cove. The tot lot has water spouting from the tun- nel slide, rope pull fountains and many other unique features. Older children and adults usual- ly head down to the other end of the park to the big tube and tunnel slide area. Two, 27-foot high, 205-foot long double waterslides twist and turn down to a receiving splash pool. Entrance fees are $1 for chil- dren 16 and younger and $1.50 for adults. The main park entrance fee is in effect. Some of the special services available at the water park include a food concession operation. Monday night is Group Rate Night, which offers an op- portunity for groups and private gatherings to enjoy the exclusive use of the entire water park for the evening. The cost is $1,500 A staff of fully qualified lifeguards will be on duty, and guests may either bring their own food or pur- chase food items from the park. Entertainment, with some restric- tions, is permitted. Alcoholic bev- erages are not allowed and the maximum number of people al- lowed in the water park is 1,200. Food and beverages may not be brought into the water park. Picnic tables are provided just outside the gates and in the general picnic area in the park.
