From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):

Now in its 13th year, the water festival continues to enchant youngsters — all 1,900 of them who attended Thursday’s event. Ask a group of them what their favorite exhibit was and the answers will change as quickly as Colorado weather. “Aqua-robics,” one boy said confidently.

“He means aerobics,” a girl nearby chimed in.

“No, it was called aqua-robics,” another girl added.

So, what did the girls like?

“Aqua-robics.”

“Aqua-robics.”

And the next five as well. There’s a ton of peer pressure in fourth grade…

The annual event is primarily sponsored by the Pueblo Board of Water Works, the Bureau of Reclamation, CSU-Pueblo, the Southeastern Colorado Water Conservation District, St. Charles Mesa Water District and Pueblo West Metropolitan District. Numerous other local agencies have exhibits and local businesses have signed on as co-sponsors.
