You know that summer is in full swing when Lake Alma State Park stages the annual Lake Alma Beach Party. This one day event includes everything from a Beach Baby contest to a scavenger hunt to fingerprinting by the Sheriff’s Department. It is always organized by the Friends of Lake Alma the first Saturday in August, this year on August 4.
This is a terrific way to get outside and enjoy the summer sun before school resumes. Can you believe school starts in just a few weeks?
