Kayak races, queen's contests, a pet show, a lip sync contest, and many more activities are in the mix as the 22nd Annual Lake Alma Beach Party will unfold this Saturday, July 14. Activities start at 9 a.m. and will extend into the late-evening hours.

The annual event is sponsored by the Friends of Lake Alma group and was established to help promote the state park, which is located on State Route 349 two miles northeast of Wellston and just inside the Vinton County line. It also provides a summertime event for state park campers and residents in an ideal setting.

According to event spokesperson, Lise Davis, the deadline for the Queen's Contest entry is today (Wednesday). The contest will begin at 5 p.m. with divisions from youth to senior being crowned. The Little Miss contestants range from ages 6-9; the Junior Miss are ages 10-13 while the Miss ages range from 14-18. All contestants must live or attend school in Jackson or Vinton counties. Applications are available at Andrea's Bridal and Fantastic Sams in Jackson, plus Brodigan's and The Detour in Wellston.

The Opening Ceremony is set for 9 a.m. with a Beach Baby/Toddler Contest to begin soon after at 9:15 a.m. The registration for Beach Baby/Toddler Contest will begin at 8 a.m.

At 10 a.m., there will be a new event held, the Kayak Time Trials. It will be on the lower beach and will give the contestants an opportunity to enjoy the beach and waterways. The registration fee is $5 and the contestants must have their own kayaks to participate.

Davis added males and females will compete in age-group categories. Awards will be given to first, second, and third places in each age group. Contestants can pick up an application Saturday before the event starts. Contestants under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to register.

There will also be a Pet Show held at 1 p.m. in the amphitheater, sponsored by Paws-A-While. There will also be a Lip Sync contest beginning at 2 p.m. Contestants will be able to bring their own music and will be limited to a 90-second routine. Other events and activities during the day include Hoop Shoot, Chinese Auction and kids' games.

After the new royalty is crowned, the entertainment for the evening will be DJ Tommy Hill spinning the tunes from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. For more information on the party, log on to the Lake Alma Group Public Facebook Page.

The Radio will be conducting a live remote broadcast from the Lake Alma Beach Party from 2 to 4 p.m. on WKOV (96.7 FM).
