The Mobile County Health Department will host its fifth annual Creek Fest. The event is set for Saturday, May 11, at Tricentennial Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Creek Fest is a celebration of Three Mile Creek, which was the city’s first source of drinking water. It affects many local communities as it flows through six of Mobile’s seven districts, parts of Prichard and all three of Mobile County’s districts.
The free event will again include a cane-pole fishing tournament for ages 16 and under, along with other family-friendly activities. The new kayak/canoe launch will be available for the first time as free rides will be again be provided.
Several special events are being added this year. We will also want to recognize the recent improvements at Tricentennial Park, such as additional benches, a bicycle repair station, a special dispenser for water bottles and the workout equipment area.
We are inviting area civic groups, environmental organizations and entities that promote healthy exercise to join us and be available to tell the festival attendees about their mission. Merit badges for Boy Scouts will also be available.
