Want to have some fun?! Grab your kayak, pedal boat, or paddleboard, and dress it, and you, up any way you want to. Get creative with your ideas, the more festive, fun and wacky the better! You'll join other wacky watercraft on the parade route and at the end the judges will decide who takes home the "Best Wacky of 2019" award!
Need a watercraft? Borrow one of the loaners we'll have on site but...register early or they may be gone! Email Editor@SilverSprings.Life to get on the list to borrow one.NOTE: Crafts don't have to be as extravagant as the pictures here. Just grab a costume, stick a stuffed unicorn on your SUP...and away you go!
SPECIAL - SOAP BOAT CATEGORY: Ages 6 - 15
PRIZES – Take home a 2-person Inflatable Kayak….and, a $50 gift certificate to Bill White restaurants to thank mom & dad for their support. Everybody in the family wins!
To qualify - Make a watercraft which floats and isn't based on an existing craft i.e. no SUPs, kayaks, canoes, peddle boats. Maneuver it around a special section of the course without sinking.
Dads (and Moms) this is a dream come true!
Your chance to squeeze one more amazing thing into your child's summer!
Think of a cross between a Soap Box Derby and a Cardboard Boat Race. Got it? Yup...if it floats and your kid made it...(with your help is OK) you could be the proud parent of a very wet and happy kid.
Note: Race will be a short course in the protected end of the lake with a lifeguard standing by.
A brand new expanded playground with wonderful new equipment was being installed during July and the official unveiling will be at the Party in the Park. This was the equipment which got the rave remarks and all thumbs-up from the kids on the selection committee... so bring your kids and explore the fun!
You will LOVE this! Picture twelve buckets anchored in the lake. Each bucket holds a dozen flowers uniquely labeled to that bucket. Your job is to get to each bucket, any way you want to: kayak, paddleboard, raft, etc, collecting one rose from each bucket and then be the first (or second or third) one back to the finish line with a complete set of a dozen flowers, one from each bucket. Oooohhh....this will be FUN! ...Get your cameras readyPRIZE - You'll be competing for the coveted Golden Paddle, a Royal Lei and $50 Bill White Gift Certificate. This is an amazing prize package you will cherish and show off all year long. Good luck!
A 30-minute magic show filled with "Ooohs" and "Aahhhs" awaits those young and old alike. Find a piece of grass to get comfortable on and be prepared to be AMAZED.
All the way from Salt Lake City ...this is a show not to be missed.
You have wondered what it would be like (it's fun!), you wondered if you could do it (you can!), you have even been praying for an opportunity to give it a try, surrounded by supportive friends and neighbors (who will share the pics with you later). Well... Now is your chance!!
Lindsey Marshall of Eventful Yoga is going to be offering a complimentary paddleboard lesson at 3:00 PM. She will also be on hand for a couple hours afterwards to answer questions in case you miss the Intro Lesson.
The Big Lake Grill Meisters, Paul Stangeland & Les Carriel, return with their amazing grill show featuring: Chicken, Hot Dogs, and Burgers! (oh yeah!)

We hope to have at least 10-12 paddleboards available for use during the afternoon. Details are still being worked out. If anyone in Silver Springs can loan us a board or a kayak, we would be ever so grateful.
Whatever we end up with, we will have paddleboard pros as well as lifeguards on hand to help get you started so, if you have ever wanted to try...this is your chance.
