College students on a large slip and slide.Blazer Nights: Splash into Spring takes place April 18 on the UAB Softball Field (photo by Harrison Wilson on Flickr).Spring has barely begun, but already complaints are popping up about the heat. Hot weather in Birmingham makes you yearn for the days of splashing through the sprinkler in the yard.

Who says those days have to end just because you're in college?

Come out to the UAB Softball Field April 18 from 6-10 p.m. and cool off with Blazer Nights: Splash into Spring! Various water attractions will be set up, including a slip and slide, a corkscrew water slide, and a water balloon station.

Free Jim 'N Nick's BBQ will also be available, and starting at 7 p.m. you can catch an outdoor screening of Silver Linings Playbook (for which Jennifer Lawrence won an Oscar for Best Acress).
