Last Year’s Wally Lake Fest Events ~ Saturday

Lake Fest Open Market Fair

Saturday of Lake Wallenpaupack’s WALLY LAKE FEST was an outstanding day, pure, unadulterated, punch you in your jaw, off-the-hook, FUN!  There was literally something for everyone.  It’s hard to imagine how this year is going to top it, but it’s a guarantee.  There were so many events on Saturday I can’t even recap them all… so here are some of the highlights.

Kayaking on Lake Wallenpaupack

There were two major draws that ran all day, the Boat & Watercraft Show located at Lake Wallenpaupack Area High School and the Open Market Fair held at the Visitor Center.  The Boat Show was great, the Boat Shop, A&D Marine, Rusty Palmer’s and Lake Fest presenting sponsor Lighthouse Harbor Marina all brought some of the finest watercraft on the market to show off.  There was some serious buzz about those boats, like a hand polished 2011 black Cobalt – wow.

The Open Market Fair filled the grounds surrounding the Visitor’s Center with vendors of all shapes and sizes, kettle corn, beautiful photography, antiques, clothing, artistic candles, art work and much more.  The center was packed!  Had to be at least a couple thousand people pass through over the course of the day.  The backdrop to the fair was mighty Lake Wallenpaupack, the Palmyra Township Beach was full of sunbathers, kayakers and kite fliers!  The new 2 mile nature trail was alive with families and friends of all ages, walking from the Scenic Boat Tours and Gresham’s Landing on the Overlook over to the free Sail Boat Rides, passed the high school finally ending up at the PPL Environmental Center for a tour of the dam!

While the boat parade may have lacked some participation it over compensated with spectators and everyone who was around had a great time!  After the winners were announced it was time to wrap up the day in downtown Hawley with an ice cream social and a great presentation by the high school marching band.  Once again the restaurant’s were humming with many, happy, lake fest goers.
