“Make Waves” at WaterFest 2017. 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 water games, a water arcade, climbing walls, jump castle, native plant giveaway, Passport Odyssey with great prizes, live animals, landscaping, watershed and art exhibits, music and dance, lakeside yoga, food for purchase and lots more!
WaterFest is sponsored by the Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District with the cities of Saint Paul, Maplewood, Roseville, Little Canada, Shoreview, White Bear Lake and North St. Paul, Capitol Region Watershed District, Ramsey County, Met Council Environmental Services, Barr Engineering, MN Native Landscapes and other partners.
