Registration is open to attend the 2018 Metro Area Children’s Water Festival (http://metrocwf.org/) that will take place on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. The Festival will include over 1,400 metropolitan area students (plus home-school students) to learn a most important lesson: WATER IS LIFE.
The purpose of the festival is to raise participants understanding of how water makes everyday life possible. Through understanding the water cycle, and its importance to natural resources, participants learn to appreciate our natural environment and apply conservation measures for sustained water resources. Classes will be selected from the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
The 2018 annual Metro Area Children’s Water Festival is the 21st festival that is held on the last Wednesday of September. Over twenty-six thousand students have attended previous festivals. Many have children of their own. The sponsors of the Festival intend to develop a metropolitan community that recognizes the importance of clean and sustainable water resources.
