Discover Presque Isle by Mary Birdsong

Ladies and Gentlemen, don your swimwear! It’s time to make sand sculptures, try your hand at paddleboards, listen to live music, and dance around a beach bonfire.

Also on tap for your outdoor pleasure are tours of the Presque Isle Lighthouse tower, family yoga, an expanded children’s area, and the area’s largest arts and crafts show.

And, really, that’s just the beginning. If you like a lot of action, participate in the Smith’s Volleyball Challenge or the fifth annual Beach Brawl. If you don’t, there’s always Presque Isle Rotary’s pancake breakfast and a serene tour of the lagoons on a pontoon boat.

See a special nighttime kites and windsock illumination at Sunset Point on Friday night and on Saturday, the live music starts on Beach 8 at 3 p.m. and runs through 10 p.m.  Bands include East Ave., Dual Identity, Six Years After, and Taylor-Maid. The later ones come with a side of bonfire.

Frog Buttons will be sold throughout the weekend for a $3 donation that helps fund park projects and programs. And as always, one button owner walks away with a $1,000 prize.
