Jump in the Pool or to the Sky on the 4th of July

Alexandra Goldman, 10, dives to the bottom of the Scarsdale pool looking for pennies and scraping the knuckles of her hands on the pool floor in the process, every year during the Penny Hunt at the Pool Carnival Day.

"I always do the Penny Hunt with my friends and then we count all of them and split them up," said Goldman. "Once I got to keep 30 cents. I think I spent 25 cents on a gum ball and stuck the other five cents in my wallet."

Goldman, her friends and other kids will get to hunt for pennies and participate in other activities Monday for the Fourth of July Pool Carnival Day.

There will be a jumping castle, swimming, picnicking, giant slides, face painting, music, special guests and aquatic activities such as the freestyle swim races and the parent-child relays.

"I like the freestyle one," said Goldman. "I always win it and then I see my name in the paper."

The festivities are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Only pool pass-holders and their guests will be allowed to enter.

"Kids enjoying themselves and running around, the parent-child relay races, people going out in the grass and picnicking together," said Jason Marra, assistant Scarsdale superintendent of parks, recreation and conservation. "I just love the family atmosphere,"
