Great Family Events!

Smelt-O-Rama - April 26

Join the Lake Forest Recreation Department as we rediscover a Lake Michigan tradition. Osmerus mordax, otherwise known as smelt, return to our shores each spring to spawn in the warm water near piers and beaches. The Boating Pavilion at Forest Park Beach will serve as "smelt central" on Saturday April 26th from sundown to 10:00pm. You will learn how to catch, clean and cook these tasty little critters! A limited number of nets will be provided by the Recreation Department so that everyone will have a chance to get into the action. Participants are encouraged to wear warm clothes and bring any smelting equipment they have on hand. Parents must supervise their children at this event. Don't miss out on this free family event for Lake Forest residents! Call Joe Mobile at 810-3941 for more information.
