May weather smiles on Bear Creek Waterfest

Despite dire weather predictions, the 18th annual Bear Creek Waterfest was held under absolutely perfect spring conditions. Breakfast, free giveaways, live music by the Hawks and Owls band, and plenty of critters in the creek were on hand for those who stopped by. Free native white pine trees were offered by the Kent County Parks Foundation booth volunteers Pam and Eileen. Kids pulled on waders and splashed in the chilly water of Bear Creek to find the underwater creatures. The ever-popular duck race continued to charm children.

Other outdoor activities in the Rockford area are the free kids fishing days at the nearby Izaak Walton League conservation center, located at 5641 Myers Lake Road; all equipment supplied. The event is held every Saturday in May from 9 a.m. to noon.
