The beautiful community of Green Valley Lake, hidden above Hwy. 18 at about the 7,000 foot level, comes alive each year when the annual Water Carnival is held and this year was no exception.
This year there were several events going on in the community including a rummage sale, visiting the fabulous local garden (where music was also featured) and of course, the lake itself that was filled with happy children and adults who were more than thoroughly enjoying all the fun including the always fabulous (and strenuous) Dam to Raft Swim. To put it mildly, if you weren’t in Green Valley Lake for all the fun you missed it all! One of the longest running competitions (and most competitive) is the sandcastle building contest which always draws a lot of families to this annual event. Each year it is amazing what kids and families do to walk away with bragging rights for this annual fun event!
As the summer moves into fall this Water Carnival is the last of the summer’s events and it signals, each year, that fall is not far behind.
