Labor Day holiday events this weekend at MWCD lake parks

August 30, 2010

The upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend (Sept. 3-6) signals the traditional end of the summer recreation season.

The five lake parks of the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District - located at Atwood, Charles Mill, Pleasant Hill, Seneca and Tappan lakes - are hosting plenty of fun events all weekend long.

While the summer season for the MWCD parks wraps up Monday (Sept. 6), the parks remain open all year long, with camping available any time. For details, contact your favorite lake park.

Events planned at the lake parks this weekend include:

    * Atwood Lake Park - The highlight is a giant fireworks show to close out summer on Saturday (Sept. 4) at dark, but that's hardly all the park will feature. The band 8-Track & Elvis is scheduled to play at 7 p.m. on Saturday, and the Atwood Olympics are planned on Sunday (Sept. 5). And don't forget, the park again will play host to the 28th Annual Atwood Area Fall Festival scheduled Oct. 1-3.

    * Charles Mill Lake Park  - Events are scheduled all weekend long beginning Friday (Sept. 3). And the fall season will include a "Spooky Weekend/Chili Cookoff" on Oct. 1-3.

    * Pleasant Hill Lake Park - The park has lots of activities for children and adults alike, including bingo, crafts, a horseshoe tournament, karaoke and more.

    * Seneca Lake Park - Campers and visitors will send the summer off with plenty of memories to be made through kids' choice activities, yard sales, a chili cookoff, karaoke and a pot luck dinner.

    * Tappan Lake Park - It will be a summer celebration at Tappan, along with some early Halloween events. The park will have Halloween events, such as hayrides, costume judging and trick or treat. It also will feature a disc jocke, live band, lot decoratiing and a chili cookoff.

The swimming beaches at the parks will close effective Tuesday, Sept. 7, and the parks will stop charging admission on that day, as well. For details about upcoming events at the parks, stay connected to or contact the park of your choice.

Thanks for a great 2010 and we hope to see all of you again in 2011.
