And what would a SpringFest weekend be without the classic Canyon Lodge Pond Skim and Party? Rain (from the skies or the pond) or shine, this event is always a crowd pleaser. Get your costume out and get signed up early because pond skim participant slots go quick. The pond is long (110 ft), the water’s cold and the spectators are in for a good show – 2pm on Sunday is when the fun begins.
