RIVERFEST 2012! Mountain Water, Air Await on Lake James
Lake James Riverfest 2012 will be on September 15 at Lake James State Park. There will be activities for all ages.
Lake James is a popular place starting in about one month.
On September 15, we (in conjunction with others) will bring you RiverFest -- an event with oodles of fun and games, including:
- Kayak and canoe races
- Eco Tours (by kayak/canoe)
- Carolina Raptor Center raptor release and interaction
- Educational exhibits
- Live bluegrass music
- Free maps and plenty of other handouts
- Food, FOOD and MORE FOOD!
- Raffle for an Otter XT kayak! (retail value more than $450)
Lake James will bring the beautiful water and perfect air.
Don't kayak or canoe? You can try them out!
This is a great event to attend to cool down from summer on the first lake of the Catawba River. Lake James is a beautiful lake that serves as a great example of a lake that does not have the accumulated impact seen by others in the Catawba.
It's also a great final time to see nature green before the leaves turn in October, when we will have Fall Leaf Eco-Tour (Saturday, October 20). This is a similar, smaller event to kayak out on the lake and see the colors in all their magnificence that amazes us year after year.
SO COME ON OUT! The event is 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Saturday, September 15!
Let us know if you have any questions!
