A three-day celebration of Presque Isle State Park begins today. Sure, you are asked to support the park by buying a Discover Presque Isle button for $3, but that also gets you a shot at a $1,000 prize and the event is, after all, a fundraiser for the park.
Today’s activities include free pontoon boat tours of the lagoons at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Nature Awareness Day will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Waterworks area, where park staff will share environmentally friendly information and activities. Professionals will fly kites and other items from 2 to 9 p.m. at Sunset Point.

If you do want to spend money, there will be vendors there selling food and other items.
