The 2022 Murray River Splash Festival is in full swing after one week, ready for two more weeks of fun and games by the river.

A variety of free family activities will be on offer Thursday to Sunday 10am-3pm this week and next, at Sturt Reserve.

Murray Bridge Mayor Brenton Lewis said many families who have already attended the festival would be returning again.

"Many parents are familiar with the challenge of keeping kids busy during school holidays without breaking the bank and the free activities Murray River Splash provides are the perfect antidote to break the boredom without breaking the bank," Mr Lewis said.

"Murray River Splash Festival is a fantastic and affordable way for families to create fun and lasting memories by the river," he said.

"We've had great feedback from families who came along last week and they are all saying they'll be back for more.

Activities on program for the coming week include giant hamster balls, inflatable X-treme fun run obstacle course, laser tag and lawn games, while on Thursday there will be Bunnings activities and a circus school.

On Saturday, the Wakeboard SA Summer Series Round 4 will be held, as will the Rhyme, Grind and Climb youth event at Sturt Reserve.

The Sunday program will allow families to exploring the magical Eco Maze, while a free kayaking experience with Canoe the Coorong is also an option.

Extreme heat or weather conditions may mean some activities have to be cancelled, with all updated to be provided on the Rural City of Murray Bridge Facebook page.

A COVIDSafe plan is in place for the festival, with precautions taken and patron safety prioritised.
