Water Fest 2013


Water Fest is the annual festival/celebration put on by Rezonate!  It takes place on Saturday, June 29, 2013, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Old Trace Park.  Below is an explanation of Water Fest from the Rezonate web site:  


WaterFest, the signature event for Rezonate, is an annual event that spotlights the importance of protecting, restoring and improving the water quality of the Ross Barnett Reservoir. 


Partnering together to create an exceptional event, the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District, the Barnett Reservoir Foundation, and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality invite the public to learn and have fun! More information about Rezonate and WaterFest is available at www.rezonate-ms.org.


The event relocated last year from Lakeshore Park on the Rankin side of things, to Old Trace Park in Ridgeland.  This year, the event will take place in conjunction with The Barnett Reservoir Foundation's Independence Day celebration.  It will feature a kid zones, a climbing wall, live music, food vendors, classic cars, and a fly over of military airplanes and historical aircraft.  Water Fest will start at 2 and end at 6 p.m.  However, the Independence Day Celebration continues on until after 10 p.m. and will have the popular boat parade and fireworks.  This makes for an exciting afternoon on the Reservoir.  

I can tell you from experience, both Rezonate and The Barnett Reservoir Foundation will need volunteers for these events.  It is a great way to get involved in a tangible way in the community.
