Tyler, Texas — Sunday Bergfeld Park in Tyler was filled with food, dunking booths, and hundreds of water balloons for the "Aquapalooza" water balloon war.
This event was once meant to be a small get together but after a posting on Facebook, it quickly exploded into a huge gathering.
After seeing how many people planned on attending organizers decided they add another item to the event's agenda; helping the community.
One hundred percent of the proceeds go towards PATH: People Attempting To Help. PATH is a non-profit that has been helping Smith County residents living in poverty since 1984.
