Wally Lake Fest: August 26-28, 2016

Hawley, PA. July 26, 2016. The 7th Annual Wally Lake Fest is shaping up to be non-stop, action-packed fun August 26th through the 28th. With brand new events and returning favorites on the itinerary, this is a summer celebration that brings people of all ages to beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack, which is the third largest lake in the state, and the surrounding Lake Region.
This is a unique part of the Pocono Mountains with no shortage of things to do including boating, fishing, swimming and parasailing on the lake as well as hiking, antiquing, dining, shopping, exploring and sight-seeing around every corner. The festival brings all of these elements together and adds even more excitement to the mix with more lake activities from a boat parade and sailboat rides to live music right on the lake on top of a floating stage and kayak and stand up paddleboard demonstrations. Some events require advance registration such as the Boat Parade, Tour de Towpath Bike Ride, and the Motorcycle “Ride for the Lake.” Wally Lake Fest is exactly a month away so sign up now to secure your spot!
The Boat Parade is one of the most anticipated events during Wally Lake Fest as people get creative and decorate their boats in a variety of fun themes and styles. The parade takes place on Saturday, August 27th.
