At the festival, attendees will receive a “Utah Lake Festival Passport.” The passports are used to collect stamps from educational and activity booths. Once attendees obtain all of the required stamps, they will receive a free prize! Additional prizes can be won by participating in the Photo Scavenger Hunt. Be sure to bring a smart phone or digital camera! 🙂 Stop by the information tent in front of the visitor’s center when you first arrive to the park so that you can pick up your drawstring backpack and passport.
The main goals of the Utah Lake Festival are to educate the public about what is being done to improve the lake, promote recreational activities, and allow the attendees to enjoy a beautiful Saturday at one of Utah’s greatest natural resources.
In an effort to help promote the Utah Lake photo contest as well as some of the latest and greatest camera gear to hit the market, Allen’s Camera and Sony have paired up to offer a photo walk during the festival for the first 15 people to sign up at allenscamera.net/classes. The cost is $15 and all participants will, in turn, receive a gift card for $15 which can be used toward any product or service offered by Allen’s Camera (good at any of their 3 locations: Provo, Orem, and Holladay). Allen’s Camera’s Sony rep will be coming out from Colorado and bringing with him an impressive assortment of loaner gear (cameras and lenses) which participants will be able to use for free. You can bring your own SD memory card or pick one up at the store if you need (or even transfer your photos to your smartphone via the built-in wifi feature on all of the cameras). Participants will meet at Allen’s Camera in Provo (36 N University Ave) at 10:30 to sign out the camera gear and then carpool over to the festival. Marc Morris, the Sony rep, in addition to some of the staff members from Allen’s, will be available answer questions and/or offer advice during the walk which will run from approximately 11:00-1:00 at Utah Lake State Park.
Come experience what Utah Lake is all about! We hope to see you there. For questions, call the Utah Lake Commission at 801-851-2900.
