Urban Roots Youth will be leading activities at this year's WaterFest at Lake Phalen, put on by Ramsey Washington Metro Watershed District.
WaterFest is a free, family festival celebrating our clean lakes with fun outdoor activities and hands-on learning about local watershed topics.
On the water: Join the Water Parade at 11 a.m. Throughout the day, enjoy the lake from a canoe, kayak or paddleboat, learn to fish, or participate in a fishing contest.
In the park: The fun continues with live music and dance, water games, climbing walls, a jump castle, native plant giveaway, Passport Odyssey with great prizes, live animals, food vendors and lots more!
This year’s theme is “Follow the Flow,” a nod to Saint Paul’s largest connected chain of lakes. The annual festival is presented by Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District, which created a water trail map for the Phalen Chain and has restored more than 100 native plant species along large areas of shoreline.
