 Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate the Lake at this year’s Summer Splash!

Over 200 people participated in the activities offered by our amazing group of partners and volunteers. A stream of big smiles, music and sunny weather animated the beach atmosphere at James Chabot Provincial Park, stoked by our fantastic Masters of Ceremony Duncan Whittick. Lake enthusiasts got a chance to try out paddleboards with Syndicate Boardshop, enter kayak races with Columbia River Kayak & Canoe, build industriously at the watershed sand sculpture contest, craft lake stories at the comic booth, search for aquatic treasures in a hunt provided by East Kootenay Invasive Plant Council, and learn about local watershed science at Lake Windermere Ambassadors’ water quality demo station.

Thank you to all Ambassadors volunteers for their contributions making the day such a blast. Donations from Home Hardware provided shade to our booths and Gerry’s Gelati brightened prize-winners faces with dreams of ice cream. Last but not least, big thanks goes out to our sponsors Columbia Basin Trust and BC Parks for their continued support of this annual event! Looking forward to returning and new faces at Summer Splash 2016!
