Murfreesboro, TN – As the old song says, “Summertime, and the livin’ is easy…”. That proved to be especially true Friday (6/14/2024) afternoon at AdamsPlace on Memorial Boulevard. Senior citizens are no different from others, when it’s 91-degrees—why not get on splash in the water and eat something cool?  

Community Relations Director Claire Highfield said, “AdamsPlace held its 3rd annual Summer Bash event, featuring their famous Ride’n Slide. Residents are pulled on a float down a large, wet tarp by members of the Murfreesboro Fire Department.”


The sound of laughter, cheering and water splashing could be heard as firefighters ran while pulling ropes tied to giant inner tubes carrying seniors.

Highfield noted, “Even the Chick-fil-A cow got to have a turn and joined the fun. Residents also enjoyed Repicci's Italian ice and gelato while dancing to music and playing carnival games provided by various vendors. It was the perfect way to kick off summer!”
