Boating and Water Safety Fair May 22

   Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the 1st annual Big Eddy Boating and Water Safety Fair, sponsored and hosted by the Clearwater County Sheriff’s Office, US Army Corps of Engineers Dworshak Dam, Idaho Parks and Recreation, and other very generous local organizations. 

   Activities include:

   A PWC (personal water craft) simulator for kids to try—lots of fun!

   A dive trailer and diving equipment on display—sponsored by the Clearwater County Sheriff’s Office

   All kinds of outdoor activities and water safety games (with prizes!) for kids

   Free boat safety inspections (a great opportunity to be sure we’re all ready for a safe boating season!)

   A free life jacket exchange for kids, in which they bring their clean, useable life jacket that they’ve outgrown to exchange for one that fits properly.  The exchanged life jacket must be in good shape, and not the orange, Type 2 jacket.

   There will be food, in which all non-profit proceeds will help local animals.

   The fair hopes to host upbeat music by local, young musicians.

   Bring the family, and drive over to Big Eddy on May 22. There’s something for everyone at the 1st annual Boating and Water Safety Fair.
