CROWN POINT — The traveling show called Adirondack Waterfest is headed for Crown Point’s Penfield Homestead Museum this year.
The free Waterfest features water-related interactive booths, games and prizes, with activities for children and adults.
Waterfest 2012 takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday at the Penfield Homestead in the hamlet of Ironville, sponsored by the Essex County Soil and Water District and the Greater Adirondack Resource Conservation and Development Council.
Since 1995, Waterfest has traveled annually from town to town, and this year, Crown Point will host the event. It was held in Lake Placid last year.
“This event provides the opportunity for local businesses and organizations to reach a very large audience by exhibiting their efforts to conserve and protect our water resources in a fun and relaxed outdoor venue,” Lois Sayward of the Soil and Water District said in a release. “It’s educational and fun.”
The 18th-annual Waterfest will include live music by Roy Hurd, a birds-of-prey demonstration, games, backyard bass fishing, a water-quality trivia contest and many exhibit booths.
The mission of Adirondack Waterfest is to provide information and education about local water quality, watershed protection, invasive species, home septic-system maintenance and shoreline-erosion prevention.
