DISCOVER A LOCAL TREASURE in WEST PALM BEACH

Water surrounds South Florida and there is always a fun event happening near or on the water. Coming up on November 14, 2015, is a super fun and free, family event that is located on West Palm Beach Waterfront.

Discover a local treasure at LagoonFest, where it is encouraged to learn about the fascinating local marvels from the Lake Worth Lagoon and to educate all on the importance on protecting this urban estuary.  The Lake Worth Lagoon is the largest estuary located in Palm Beach County and a special place where fresh water meets saltwater. The Lagoon is as long as 20 miles and about a half a mile wide that holds seagrass beds, mangroves, manatees, turtles, wading birds, as well as more than 250 documented types of fish species and numerous invertebrates, such as crabs.

The Lake Worth lagoon has a lot of history and challenges it faces by human activities over the past 100 years. LagoonFest has been sought out to educate on the challenges and discover ways to enhance the ecosystem and chart the course for continuous improvements.

At LagoonFest get ready for Live Music, Wildlife Presentations, plenty of fun exhibitors, children activities, awesome lagoon tours, water sports and so much more!
