Fire Festival Update!

Planning for the Fire in the Lakes Festival is well on its way and we have some great stuff lined up this year starting with the return of Creative Flame, the most amazing fire juggling team in the world!  They will be performing throughout the entire event, so exciting!

Of course we will have the usual fun stuff…games, crafts, live music by Possum Creek, bouncy castles, a demonstration controlled burn, food, face painting, a big raffle, and lots and lots of live animals!  Visit our website and like us on Facebook for all of the latest updates.  As always the Fire in the Lakes festival is a free event so bring all of your family and friends!

We will also be hosting The Half Hell Haul 7K race and 1 mile fun run/walk on the Boiling Spring Lakes preserve nature trail.  This run will be through biodiverse ecosystems that have recently been managed using controlled burning, not something you get to see everyday!  Click here for race registration details.
