Hawley, PA – Wally Lake Fest is an annual event celebrating beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack and the surrounding lake region. The last weekend in August promises endless fun for people of all ages with exciting activities and events scheduled throughout August 23rdthrough the 25th.
Since Wally Lake Fest honors the “big” lake’s natural scenic beauty and the many recreational opportunities it provides from boating to biking, there will be an abundance of outdoor adventures for residents and visitors can participate in. The great thing about these activities is people don’t have to be athletes to take part in them because there is something for everyone with all skill levels. The most important thing is to have a blast while doing them. Some of these fun outdoor adventures happen right on the lake or beach, while others venture farther out into the lake’s surrounding area.
Whether bike riding or enjoying sailboat rides, outdoor enthusiasts can look forward to three days of enjoying all that Wally Lake Fest has to offer. There will be a Motorcycle “Ride for the Lake” with a 41 mile ride around the lake, Canoe, Stand Up Paddleboard and Kayak Demos with on and in-water trials, Battle of the Bands with live music ON the lake on top of a floating stage, Free Sailboat Rides, Fly Casting Demo and Instruction, a Sailboat Regatta Race featuring the Paupack Sailing Club, an Open Market Fair, a Boat Parade, a Tour De Towpath Bike Ride and much more! To make it possible for people to get the most out of their Wally Lake Fest experience, a free shuttle bus will run every five to ten minutes on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (with a Hawley Silk Mill stop available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Wally Lake Fest is proudly hosted by the Downtown Hawley Partnership and presented by Lighthouse Harbor Marina.
