Free Father's Day swimming at Hartke

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Hartke Pool offered free swimming to the first 500 people that came to the pool on Sunday.

One of the father's that took advantage of that was James Davis.

He says his kids and wife surprised him this morning with a few gifts before asking to go to the pool with him.

He says when he got there he got another surprise.

"All four of us got in," says Davis. "It was very surprising, I didn't know about it."

Davis says when they left the pool they were planning on going to a family member's house to grill out.

Workers at Hartke Pool tell us lots of other fathers were out at the pool enjoying their day.
