The 20th Annual

LYNXX Waterfest Venetian Lights Boat Parade & Fireworks Finale

is Saturday, August 3, 2019 (always the first Saturday in August)!  Waterfest is one of the biggest weekends of the year here in the Castle Rock Lake Wisconsin area!

Saturday hosts a full day of fun-filled family activities at the Castle Rock County Park, and the Dirty Turtle Restaurant & Marina is a-buzz with food & fun, family & friends.

Then at dusk the LYNXX Waterfest Venetian Lights Boat Parade departs from the Dirty Turtle at O’Dell’s Bay on Castle Rock Lake.  This string of lighted and theme decorated boats meanders the shoreline all the way to Castle Rock Park, showing off their original designs as crowds from shore cheer them on and demonstrate favor by blinking their personal flashlights.

Once the boat parade reaches Castle Rock Park (around 9:45 – 10pm), the spectacular fireworks show begins!  People enjoy the display from the park, the shorelines, and even from their boats in the harbor.  It’s a climactic ending to a fabulous day!

Join the Boat Parade!  There is a $500 “Best of Fleet” Prize, plus cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place boats.  The boater Awards Ceremony happens the following morning at the Dirty Turtle for a complimentary Brat Brunch.  Door prizes and coupons from local business sponsors are also awarded.  Registration is free!  Visit www.juneaucounty.com/waterfest.  Haven’t decorated your boat before?  NO PROBLEM!  We have inverter & LED light kits available at cost to help you get started!  Contact us for details (608) 427-2070 or JCEDC@JuneauCounty.com.

This event is funded by local businesses and organizations in appreciation and support of the tourism in our lakes area.  Tourism has a huge economic impact on our local economy, so we at JCEDC encourage our local businesses to take advantage of this busy weekend by advertising Waterfest specials.  If you wish to sponsor the parade this year please contact us via the information above.  Thank you!

Waterfest details and winners will also be announced on NOW 92.1 FM radio WRJC, so tune is this summer!  Special thanks to Murphy’s Law Media for being a major Waterfest sponsor every year!
