Rain to Recreation Events
On June 14, 2008, approximately 3,000 people made history at the City of Lincoln's 2nd Biennial Waterfest. For three hours, guests learned about our most valuable resource -- water. Exhibitors and volunteers helped guests to learn about what they can do to conserve water and reduce pollutants in local streams and lakes.

Persons attending Waterfest 2008 received a water passport, which was marked as they stopped by each booth. For attending at least 10 stations, each family received a reusable shopping bag with earth friendly gifts. Free hot dogs and sodas were available. Several of the exhibitor booths had fun, hands-on activities. Persons could also take a canoe ride, attend a fishing clinic, observe a raptor release, listen to the String Beans, or visit the 106.3 KFRX live remote.
