Whether you are young, old, slow or fast, everyone has found memories of hot summers where the best way to cool off was a friendly spray of the hose, a ice cold bucket of water strategically poured over a friends head, water balloons being frantically filled and thrown, and water guns being brought out to battle.
Drenched is all about bringing everything you loved about those lazy summers back, an event where you can have fun with your friends and get healthy in the process!
