Lakes Festival A Success
Kosciusko Lakes and Streams, which is Grace College’s water research center, hosted the fifth annual Northern Indiana Lakes Festival over the weekend. The festival took place in Warsaw and Winona Lake Friday through Sunday, June 7-9.
“The lakes are vital to our economy, environment, recreation and our very sense of community. The Lakes Festival was able to celebrate this by creating opportunities to both experience and be educated about the lakes,” says Anna Burke, Lakes Festival coordinator and Kosciusko Lakes and Streams program manager.
Attendees participated in the numerous fun and educational events the festival offered. Children and adults alike learned how to keep lakes and streams clean from displays in the Lake Education area. There was also great participation in the Art Around the Lakes activities, Run for Others 5K, Warsaw Aqua Mile, and several new events associated with the festival. Favorite activities included the live animal show, canoeing and kayaking, bounce houses, 5,000 gallon aquarium, and the Lake City Skiers performance.
