Thanks to our numerous volunteers and donors, the 2017 Macatawa Water Festival was a great success! We had nearly 4,000 people attend the event on Windmill Island. The weather was perfect with blue skies, sun, and a comfortable breeze. We had good feedback from people about fishing, kayaking, riding bikes around Windmill Island, seeing live animals and visiting a wide variety of booths.

A huge thanks to our event sponsor, Meijer, who provided fresh fruit and water!
