A splash of a good time and a better future for the city of Baltimore.

On Friday evening, the office of State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby hosted a pop-up event for teems and children at Cherry Hill Splash Park Pool.

The Department of Justice put out a report that young people are most likely to commit a crime between 6 and 9 at night.

The city's leaders hope these pop-ups give something fun and constructive to do during that time.

The food and activities were free to families.

The State's Attorney's office puts on these events to curb the violence before it starts.

“If we get to our young people now while they're young in classrooms as opposed to courtrooms we are forever changing our city," said Shalick Fulton, State's Attorney's Office.

Next Friday night at Druid Hill Park Pool is the biggest and final pop-up of the summer. They'll be giving away 600 backpacks full of supplies.
