Catering by ​​Crabbes Creek Catering & Events and tennis activities by Little Racquets will also be available onsite.

Martin Gill, Ocean Shores Public School Relieving Principal commented that "Ocean Shores Public school students have been incredibly enthusiastic and appreciated input during past consultations for improvements to Waterlily Park. It highlights the strength of local school, community and government partnerships to enhance the local area for residents. I know our students appreciate the park and are excited about continued involvement in the next phase of the project".

Josie Tebo, Waterlily Playscape Committee Chair added "I am impressed and encouraged by the new generation of involved and active locals that grow up in Ocean Shores. Hopefully the Waterlily experience will help them develop their sense of community and they will continue to actively support community initiatives in the future".  

There are still a few spots available for local performers of all kind and age during the event. Contact the committee for more details: community@waterlilyplayscape.org.
