LAKE REGION- The Fourth Annual Wally Lake Fest is just a couple of weeks away and local residents and visitors are looking forward to celebrating the good times of summer on beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack with many activities from free sailboat rides and a boat parade to an open market fair and a tour de towpath bike ride.
Wally Lake Fest takes place August 23rd through the 25th. Families and friends attend the action packed event celebrating this scenic lake and all it has to offer. The festival gives people the opportunity to have a blast out on the water and on dry land. It’s also an ideal way to spend the last summer weekend together before back to school and the Labor Day holiday.
With many events offered at different locations, festival-goers may wonder how they can easily make it from one to the next without concerning themselves with searching for parking spots at each place. While a variety of activities are within walking distance of each other, there are some that require a short drive.
To make it possible for people to get the most out of their experience, a free shuttle bus will run every five to ten minutes on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A Hawley Silk Mill stop is available only on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is a convenient new service, which allows people to park their car once as the free shuttle bus brings them around to many of the event locations. The route includes stops at these prime locations along Route 6: the PPL Environmental Learning Center, the Wallenpaupack Middle School, the Wallenpaupack High School, the Lake Wallenpaupack Visitors Center and Gresham’s Landing. Take advantage of this free shuttle and don’t miss any of the fantastic events planned!
Wally Lake Fest is proudly hosted by the Downtown Hawley Partnership and presented by Lighthouse Harbor Marina.
