The Lake Cleanup will kick off first from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Then, the Earth Day Festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Enjoy environmental demonstrations, a kids zone, DJ music and entertainment, food, an aerialist performance and an Easter egg drop – all free.

Prizes will be awarded for most weight of trash collected, youngest participant, oldest participant, oddest object found and more.
