Save the Wild Up is celebrating Lake Superior Day with a WATERPALOOZA Water Festival on Sunday, July 15th at Mattson Lower Harbor Park from 11am to 8pm. Enjoy food, music and water related activities while learning the importance of protecting our most beautiful and vital natural resource.
This community water celebration is designed to engage folks in the stewardship of the Great Lakes, the global freshwater crisis and the cultivation of a vibrant and sustainable local culture. This family-oriented, community-centered program will feature Michigan musicians, food and beverages, workshops, visual art, children’s activities, as well as connections to campaigns and projects protecting our water locally and/or addressing global water challenges.
Vendors interested in tabling your water related information or activities can contact our office by calling 906-228-4444. A generous space is available for $20 per vendor.
