It will be a busy weekend in the Lakes Area. If you aren't going to be at Waterama, be sure to stop by Art in the Park on Saturday and Sunday. Held for 31 years
at City Park on the shores of Lake Henry, there is arts and crafts but also has live music, food vendors and more. If you aren't going to it, avoid this part of CR-42 like the plague as traffic is very slow (for Alexandria anyway). Shuttles are offered from Runestone Community Center. This is advisable. You park and hop on an air-conditioned shuttle that drops you off at the entrance.
Also happening this Saturday is the 4th annual Iron Horse Animal Ride. Animal lovers are hopping on their motorcycles and riding together to benefit the Lakes Area Humane Society. If you are interested in participating or just would like a little more information, call (320) 759-2260.
