Kingsport Aquatic Center: Winter Wonderland
December 10, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
A Winter Wonderland at the Kingsport Aquatic Center
The Kingsport Aquatic Center will be a beautiful sight this weekend as folks spend an afternoon “swimin’ in a winter wonderland.”
A Winter Wonderland Swim event will be held at the Kingsport Aquatic Center (1820 Meadowview Parkway) on Dec. 10 from noon to 3 p.m. Admission will be $5 if you pre-register and $7 at the door.
Visitors will play reindeer games, meet Santa Claus and Elsa, and enter prize drawings while enjoying three hours of indoor swim time. For those who don’t wish to swim, there will be plenty of games and crafts to enjoy as well.
An elusive Elf on a Shelf will be hidden somewhere within the Kingsport Aquatic Center and the one who finds him will receive a special gift package.
“We are excited to debut the Winter Wonderland Swim event here at Kingsport Aquatic Center this Saturday,” said Madison Gump, aquatics program coordinator. “It’ll be a great family-friendly event for all ages looking for an indoor activity this winter.”

About the City of Kingsport
Founded in 1917, the City of Kingsport (pop. 55,400) is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the eastern U.S. The city is widely known as a planned community, designed by renowned city planner John Nolen and wrapping around the foot of Bays Mountain – a 3,750-acre park, nature preserve, planetarium and observatory. Kingsport is recognized as an International Safe Community by the National Safety Council, a Healthier Tennessee community, and won the 2009 Harvard Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiatives. While many city names are duplicated throughout the U.S., there’s only one Kingsport – a fact that invokes community pride, known locally as the “Kingsport Spirit.”
