WaterFest at Lake Phalen 2017

Event Date: 
06/03/2017 - 11:00am to 4:00pm

This free, family festival celebrating our clean lakes offers fun and an
opportunity for outdoor hands-on learning about clean water, wildlife, and land
and water conservation. Start the day with a Voyageur canoe ride, paddle a
canoe, kayak or paddleboat, learn to fish or participate in a fishing contest.
 
For landlubbers, the fun continues with Farnsworth Marching Band, water games,
a water arcade, jump castle, native plant give-away, Passport Odyssey with
great prizes, live animals, Storywalk, landscaping, watershed and art exhibits,
Breck School's BATO BATO! Marimba Ensemble, Wisdom Water Dancers, lakeside
yoga, food for purchase and lots more!
 
In April 2016, Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District received the
Sustainable Saint Paul Environmental Education Award for WaterFest. It was
noted as “an event for all ages, with the vision that everyone can play a role
in protecting our water resources.” The City of Saint Paul combines their
“National Get Outdoors” celebration with WaterFest, sponsoring arts and crafts,
the jump castle, archery and face painting.
 
WaterFest is sponsored by Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District with the
cities of Saint Paul, Maplewood, Roseville, Little Canada, Shoreview, White
Bear Lake, Landfall and North St. Paul, Capitol Region Watershed District,
Ramsey County, Met Council Environmental Services, Barr Engineering, MN Native
Landscapes, MN Water Well Association and other partners. For more information:
