#6 – The on-land family-friendly festival at LakeFest is free + will be awesome! Live music, great food selection, retail vendors, nonprofit exhibitors + more.

#5 – Your kids can become official “Watershed Warriors” (complete w/ a fancy patch) at LakeFest – rest easy knowing school might be out, but they’re still learning + growing.

#4 – Lots of folks have already been counted in for Raft-a-Palooza at LakeFest – help us spread the word? Print this out, write in your reason, take a pic + post on our FB page or e/m to lakes@nhlakefest.org

#2 – Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon named his little one after Lake Winnipesaukee, so we think he’d be a great addition to our Guinness World Record attempt for largest free-floating raft of canoes + kayaks – if he’s a personal friend, feel free to give him our number. 🙂

#1 – LakeFest is going to be an incredibly fun day on-land + on-water with loads of terrific people. However, it’s also a vital opportunity to protect NH’s lakes + waterways by spreading the word about the Clean, Drain & Dry! practice to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species – click here to learn more.
