The annual Healdsburg Water Carnival is coming next weekend to Memorial Beach in Healdsburg. This has been a Sonoma County tradition since 1905. The carnival hasn’t exactly been uninterrupted, WWII, and the retrofitting of the Healdsburg bridge have caused the festival to skip some years.
The carnival brings in thousands of guests who want to enjoy a safe (lifeguarded) place to swim while enjoying water floats, a 60′ water slide, music, food, and vendors from around the county.
This year, the carnival benefits Sonoma County Regional Parks “Water Safety Patrol” program. The program consists of bilingual parks staff and lifeguards who travel up and down the river passing out free life vests for nonswimmers who want to play in the water.
Come enjoy this one-day festival Saturday, July 15th 11 am – 5 pm.
