Utah Lake Festival Plus Savoring Salt Lake

Utah State Parks are hosting many events during the coming weeks, now that the weather has warmed up and people are traveling. See the State Parks Facebook page for ideas about places and activities.

Utah Lake Festival
The 10th annual Utah Lake Festival will be held Saturday, June 7, at Utah Lake State Park from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. The address for the park is 4400 West Center Street Provo, Utah, 84601. See the festival website for details. Here are highlights:

The Utah Lake Festival is free to the public, and will offer a variety of activities for everyone. Some of these include a boat show featuring some fun and unique boats, a sail boat regatta, games and activities for kids, boat making demonstrations, and boat tours.

The main goals of the Utah Lake Festival are to educate the public about what is being done to improve the lake, promote recreational activities, and allow the attendees to enjoy a beautiful Saturday at one of Utah’s greatest natural resources.
