As the third largest park in the state, Moraine State Park attracts visitors from well beyond western Pennsylvania. One main attraction for the past 19 years has been the annual Regatta at Lake Arthur, held on the first weekend in August.

Holly Muchnok, owner of East Wing Events, has been spearheading the regatta for the past four years, and has witnessed an increase in attendance from 5,000 visitors to between 15,000-20,000 visitors in just the last few years. She says this is due, in part, to the 100 dedicated organizations and partners that participate in the two-day festival.

In addition to seeing privately owned boats dotting the sparkling Lake Arthur, festival-goers can enjoy a multitude of options to get on the water and experience sailing themselves, or take a ride on the Moraine Preservation Fund's group boat experience. They can also try something new through SummersCool, a series of classes taught by eco-experts on such topics as standup paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and YOLA-Yoga on Lake Arthur. 

Other special features include a car cruise as well as Live at Lake Arthur, featuring free concerts by local and regional musical acts. This year’s performances will also include two local winners from Battle of the Bands. A crafts marketplace with vendors will be available, along with many food options.

New this year is Dock Dogs, a premier canine aquatic competition featuring local dogs competing in categories including jumping distance and height.

The event, held Aug. 5-6, is free to the public and Muchnok encourages everyone to come experience “…a serene, peaceful park experience that will beg a return visit.” More information about the regatta can be found by visiting www.lakearthurregatta.org.
