LACONIA — LakeFest returns to Lake Winnipesaukee on August 3, 2014.
LakeFest 2014 will feature a Guinness Rematch, as paddlers try once again to capture a Guinness World Record for the largest free floating raft of canoes and kayaks. On-land, the free family-friendly Festival will expand, with more food vendors, additional programming, exciting new activities, popular live bands, and more actiities.
These Founding Sponsors have already come aboard to help, and invite area organizations to join them:

Since 2002, hundreds of paid and volunteer NH LAKES Lake Hosts have conducted more than 576,000 courtesy boat inspections and have made more than 1,409 "saves" of aquatic nuisance plant fragments that were about to enter or had just left a waterbody.
