Something for all: Will LeDeux, 7, Krystal Gribbin, 6, Regan Taylor, 6, and Dylan Taylor, 5, have plenty of options for fun at today's Nagambie on Water festival.

The Walk on Water competition, one of the festival’s unique attractions, will invite people to wear floating shoes and walk on water for 40m.

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 lakeside market stalls, flyboard and sailing demonstrations and entertainment from 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 would be jumping castles, a petting zoo and free face painting, Ms Benson said.

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 2 Pub swim are available at www.nagambieonwater.

The festival runs from 9am to 4pm at Lake Nagambie today.
