Volunteers needed for Kitsap's annual Water Festival

Help celebrate the 20th year of the Kitsap Water Festival by volunteering. The festival takes place 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 15 at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. The annual Water Festival hosts up to 1,200 fourth- and fifth-grade students from across the county. Students learn the importance of protecting precious water resources and practical ways to implement water quality measures at home.

Volunteers help with games, activities and setup and breakdown of the festival. In return, volunteers get to work outside, have fun, and are provided lunch and an official Kitsap Water Festival t-shirt. This year, in celebration of 20 years, returning volunteers are encouraged to wear t-shirts from previous Water Festivals.

For more information and to register as a volunteer, go to www.kitsapgov.com/sswm/waterfestival_vol.htm . If you have questions, contact Kimberly Jones at (360) 337-5222, Kimberly.jones@kitsappublichealth.org.

The festival is sponsored by Kitsap County’s Surface and Stormwater Management Program, the West Sound Utility District, Silverdale Water, Kitsap Public Utility District, Parametrix, Manchester Water, Kitsap Public Health, Kitsap County Solid Waste, City of Bremerton, and Kitsap County Sewer Utility.
