Wacky Water Festival

Beat the heat and learn how nature ‘keeps its cool’ with this year’s new Wacky Water Festival. Warning: you might get wet with our wacky water activities.

Cool off with storyteller Greta Rech as she shares stories from around the world in a shady spot. This month’s food trucks, The Meat Wagon and Oink and Moo, are sure to please. Be sure to grab some Weckerly’s Ice Cream before you leave.
