Dear WaterFest Supporters,
The 9th Annual WaterFest event sponsored by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality will be held in conjunction with the Annual Independence Day Celebration on Saturday, June 27, 2015 from 4 p.m. through 7 p.m. at Old Trace Park in Ridgeland, MS. WaterFest 2015 will feature live music; interactive displays; kids’ zones with inflatables and water slides; face painting, balloon artists, caricature artists, children’s crafts, games door prizes, photo booths, educational exhibits and food vendors and more!
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.
The 4rd Annual Independence Day Celebration sponsored by the Barnett Reservoir Foundation and the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District will be held at both Old Trace Park and Lakeshore Park featuring kid zones, climbing wall, live music, food vendors, and MS National Guard displays, a classic car cruise-in (Lakeshore Park only), military displays of jeeps and helicopters and flyovers of military airplanes and historical aircraft. This year we will be celebrating the 50th year anniversary of the Ross Barnett Reservoir.
Patrons of both parks will enjoy the lighted boat parade, starting at approximately 8 p.m. At 9:30 p.m. a BIGGER fireworks display to cap off our evening will take place with dueling fireworks launched from both sides of the lake making a beautiful display over the big water! Music provided by MS103 will accompany the fireworks. If you are off site but you can see the fireworks, tune your radio to MS103.
