The Water Warriors are coming!
Saturday April 6 at Memorial Park in Hendersonville TN, 5 teams led by professional artists (Carlos Calderon, Dee Kimbrell,Monica Leister, Lauren Maheu, and Kathy Plourde) will battle it out to create the most creative floating pieces of art out of plastics with a conservation message. They will then race the art on the lake inlet.
