The first five days of Lost Lake are about to get a lot easier, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be a relaxing, fun time for everyone.
That’s because this weekend’s events will also bring with it a new challenge for the team at the Lake District Police Department (LDPD).
As of Sunday, April 16, the first of eight events that will be happening on the lake have been cancelled.
The Lake District is a region with a population of about 2.5 million.
They are a regional park and recreation agency in Lake District County, about 70 miles north of New York City.
For a full rundown on how the events have been planned, check out the LDPD’s press release.
“The events will be taking place at Lake District Park and Recreation’s property located on Lake Almanor Lake in Lake Pazas.
During the first week of the event, all participants will have to pass through the lake,” reads the press release, which goes on to explain the event’s purpose.
“Participants will also have to be on the Lake of Paz as the event takes place.
The first wave will start at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, and the remaining waves will start around 2:00 p.m., ending at 7:00 pm.”
In addition to the four events scheduled for this weekend, the Lake Pascagoula National Wildlife Refuge will be hosting a water slide and fishing tournament.
The park also has a camping and fishing area.
“We’re very excited about the opportunities this will offer,” said LDPD Capt. Chris Stoll.
“It will be an event that’s not for the faint of heart.
And it’s something that is really unique to this area.”
The last three events have taken place in March.
But as of Sunday the lake is now closed.
The team at Lake PAS has promised that it will be open for public use as soon as possible.
“Lake PAS will be back open to the public once the events are over,” said Stoll in the release.
“In the meantime, we will continue to monitor events and respond as appropriate.”
The Lake of Hope event has also been canceled.
The Lake of Sunshine event was also canceled and the Lake Malawi event is being rescheduled.
The Lakes of Hope and Malawi events will take place on May 14, May 15, and May 16.
