The Nagambie on Water Festival kicks off tomorrow with many activities to entertain the young and old.
The Walk on Water competition is one of the festival’s unique attractions where people are invited to wear ‘‘floating shoes’’ and walk on water for 40 metres.
People can enter individually or as a team of four with prize money awarded to successful entrants.
The 1.1km Park 2 Pub open water swim is another key feature of the day with prize money to be won in each age category.
Entertainment on offer includes lake-side market stalls, flyboard and sailing demonstrations and entertainment by ski troupe Stars Down Under.
Festival-goers will also be able to enjoy free paddle boating and canoeing.
Organiser Beverley Benson said the day would provide cost-effective entertainment for the whole family.
‘‘There will be jumping castles, a petting zoo and free face painting,’’ Ms Benson said.
‘‘Families can enjoy a great day out and not have hand in pocket.’’
The event is in its seventh year and Ms Benson said she hoped it would attract more than 4000 people, up from about 3000 last year.
Entry forms for the Walk on Water and Park to Pub swim are available at: www.nagambieonwater.com.au.
The festival will on Saturday, March 1, run from 9am to 4pm at Lake Nagambie.
