To Kim Steltenpohl, the first of August seems too soon to be celebrating the end of summer.
But that’s exactly what she and her grandchildren did Thursday morning at Shields Park during Seymour’s annual End of Summer Escape.
With inflatable bounce houses, slides, an obstacle course, a disc jockey and ice pops, the free event drew a crowd of enthusiastic families wanting a final day of outside, carefree fun before the start of school.
Kim Ingalls, assistant parks and recreation director, said attendance was down early on in the event, but she expected it to pick up as the morning went on.
