    It’s not hard to argue that summer fun starts with safety.

    On Thursday, June 20, some 200 people, mostly kids, practiced their swimming at Wild Rivers Waterpark in Irvine, where plenty of fun will be had this summer. It was part of an event dubbed the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson that included facilities around the region participating in the water safety campaign. The emphasis is on how learning to swim, and taking lessons, can help reduce the risk of drowning.

    At Wild Rivers, the first 100 participants got to enjoy the rest of the day at the waterpark for free.
