U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville will be hosting a family fun event at Dam West Beach on July 23, 2011 from noon until 4 p.m. This event is the Aquafest Water Safety Carnival. There will be activities for all ages, so everyone is encouraged to attend this event. No day use fee will be charged to use the Dam West Beach during the event. Donations to the Lake Volunteers Association are encouraged to help support special events at Lake Shelbyville like the Aquafest Water Safety Carnival.
Individuals are also encouraged to donate a life jacket that is in good used or new condition to the Lake Shelbyville Life Jacket Loaner Program and by doing so you will receive three one day beach day use passes that can be used at any U.S. Army Corps of Engineers managed beach at Lake Shelbyville. Individuals may also bring their life jacket to the event, so that it can be inspected for proper fit and condition.
Throughout the event participants attending the different activities will receive tickets that will be redeemable for a ride on the water slide, and a chance to win a life jacket.
