Water Carnival This Weekend at Fort Peck Interpretive Center
July 10, 2019
The Fort Peck Theatre’s touring production of “Pinocchio” will be making a stop at the Fort Peck Interpretive Center on Thursday, July 13, at 10 a.m., in the Fort Peck Interpretive Center meeting room. There are only 100 seats available and they fill up fast so make sure to get there early.
After the show, walk around the Interpretive Center until the Water Carnival starts at 1 p.m. In partnership with US Fish & Wildlife Service, Milk River Watershed Alliance and the Valley County Health Department, the US Army Corps of Engineers is sharing water fun and safety activities with the community. Dress for warm weather and a splash as you drive the electric mini-boats around the “Donut Pond,” learn about the good, bad and ugly plants and bugs in the water, weave through the sprinkler with Fatal Vision goggles, equip a boat with safety gear and stay safe in the sun. Prizes, popcorn and cotton candy will be available. The event is completely free and will run until 4 p.m. For more information on the carnival call 228-3493.
The weekend of July 20, we will focus on reuse and recycle topics.
The Center is open 9-5 daily free of charge and powerhouse tours are available daily. Adults must show a photo ID when taking the powerhouse tour and need to register at the Interpretive Center. Groups of 10 or more should call in advance, 526-3493.
