Between 10:00AM and 5:00PM on Saturday, September 5th, Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill will host the 2015 WaterFest. WaterFest unites educational, cultural and recreational partners to provide a day of exploration, fun and learning about water.
“Nearly everyone feels a connection to our streams and rivers and wants to have clean water for drinking, fishing, swimming and boating,” said Melissa McAlister, the Kentucky River Basin Coordinator at UK Kentucky Water Resources Research Institute. “This event is a great opportunity for people in the area to learn more about what they can do to help protect our water resources, while enjoying the beautiful setting at Shaker Village. I encourage everyone to take some time to enjoy Shawnee Run Creek and the Kentucky River while they are there!”
WaterFest will feature local non-profits and vendors. Throughout the day, attendees can participate in stand up paddleboarding on the pond, enjoy hands-on activities, music, hikes, and learn about water quality, conservation and safety. Food and concessions will be available for purchase through Red State BBQ, Kona Ice, Classy Confections, and Cheesy Mac.
The 2015 WaterFest is sponsored by Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, Bluegrass Greensource, Kentucky River Authority, Mercer County Chamber of Commerce, Lake Village Water Association, and North Mercer Water District.
