Notes from participants

Every year, we receive many thoughtful thank you notes and cards from 4th grade students that attend the festival.

The heartfelt comments and hand-drawn pictures tell us how much the festival means to the students. They remind us why the hard work, time, and expense is required and worthwhile to produce the annual festival.

If you’re looking for meaningful ways to help, please consider supporting the festival and help ensure it continues by becoming a Metro Children’s Water Festival Sponsor.
