Goodbye Summer!

Bait & Boat Festival

(Rain date Sunday, September 9.)

Join the Friends of HPSP on the beach at Lake Marcia as we say goodbye to summer with a fun-filled day of fishing and boating!

This special event is the one day of the year that boats are allowed on Lake Marcia. Participants may borrow one of the Friends’ kayaks or canoes for a short paddle around the lake or bring their own non-motorized boat and spend the day exploring. All boaters must wear a PFD while on the lake. Participants borrowing a boat, please stop by the beach after 1 pm to sign up for a paddle time slot. Participants bringing a non-motorized boat, please remember your PFDs and stop by the beach for boating instructions before putting your boat in the water.
