The city’s fourth Waterfest, set for 5-8 p.m. Saturday, will include a celebration of Public Works Day.

Free events at Holmes Lake Park include music from PANgea, fishing, canoeing, educational exhibits, refreshments and prizes.

Mayor Chris Beutler said adding Public Works Day to Waterfest will help educate the public about services the city’s Public Works and Utilities Department provides, “from first brush to last flush.”

Waterfest will give the public an up-close look at large equipment including a street sweeper, storm sewer cleaning truck, combination sander, a truck equipped with a remote camera to look inside pipes and a boom truck.

The city’s partners in Waterfest include the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District, Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
