 Summer is in full bloom at Seminole State Park, as evidenced by the picturesque photo above taken by Park Naturalist Jason Parker

The park’s new manager, Lupe Lazarine, can already be spotted out and about in the park, saying “hello” to guests or helping keep the park looking its best. Also now on duty is the park’s new assistant manager, Shannon Bell, who brings a strong background in forestry with him to Seminole State Park. Both managers’ experience and energy are sure to be  invaluable assets to the park in the days to come.

Seminole State Park officials would like to thank all the area businesses and organizations that helped make this years’ “Fireworks At the ‘Nole” a success. “Thank you” as well to all of the guests that visited the park for the show, braving the gnats and a heat index well above 100 degrees. As an added bonus this year, a thunderstorm southeast of the park lit up the night while the fireworks lit up the sky over Lake Seminole.

Upcoming events at Seminole State Park feature a new kayak adventure as well as an old crowd favorite. The Flower Float kayak tour, the new addition to the schedule, guides guests to vast expanses of beautiful Lake Seminole to view up close the lake’s water lilies and yellow lotuses. It will be held Saturday, July 21st from 9-11 a.m., and Saturday, July 28th from 7-9 p.m. The cost is $10 and includes kayak or canoe rental. 

The Sunset Snapshot Paddle makes its return to the event calendar on July 21st from 7:30-9:30 p.m. If you’ve ever wanted a breathtaking picture of the lake, this naturalist-guided tour is the perfect chance to get it. The cost is $10 and also includes a kayak or canoe rental. 

Evening guided pontoon boat tours will also be available Friday, August 31st from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 1st from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and 8:00-9:00 p.m. Tickets for the pontoon tour are $25 each and each tour is limited to four guests per tour.

A Labor Day at the Lake event is being planned for Saturday, September 1st from 12-4 p.m. Kids can get their faces painted and bounce around in wet and dry bounce houses while the grown-ups show off their skills in the corn hole tournament or send a local personality for a swim at the dunking booth. Entry into the tournament is just $20 per team and prices for the other attractions range from two to three dollars. See page three in this edition for additional details
