Volunteers needed for Kitsap's annual Water Festival

(Port Orchard, WA) - Help celebrate the 21st year of the Kitsap Water Festival by volunteering. The festival takes place 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 14 at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. The annual Water Festival hosts up to 1,200 fourth- and fifth-grade students from across the county. Students learn the importance of protecting precious water resources and practical ways to implement water quality measures at home.

Volunteers help with games, activities and setup and breakdown of the festival. In return, volunteers get to work outside, have fun, and are provided lunch and an official Kitsap Water Festival t-shirt.
