Plunge into holiday at Chandler Turkey Swim

Before dipping into the mash potatoes and gravy on Thanksgiving Day, consider a dip in the pool at Chandler’s annual Turkey Swim.

Chandler Aquatics staff are opening Hamilton Aquatic Center for lap swimming from 5:30-7:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 24, to help people burn some calories before plunging into their Thanksgiving meals.

“This is the eighth year we’ve opened for lap swimming on Thanksgiving morning and people really enjoy it,” said Jessica Chamberlain, a recreation coordinator. “Our aim is to get the community involved in some fitness and share in the holiday spirit.”

The water is heated and admission is free to participants bringing a canned food item to be donated to the Harvest Compassion Center in Chandler. Otherwise, the cost is $2.

Hamilton Aquatic Center is located at 3838 S. Arizona Ave., on the northwest corner of Arizona Avenue and Ocotillo Road. For more information, call 480-782-2750.
