  1. Info here says the event is free, but it should read “admission is free,” and inflatables, bungee rides, and rock climbing have fees associated unless of course it’s all free but I’ve seen that before at one of these events.

  2. Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for the comment. At events like this, things you watch such as the ski exhibitions, bird show, live entertainment, etc. are usually free and things you participate in such as eating food, buying from arts and crafts vendors, climbing, jumping, etc. are typically fee based.

  3. Do you know where the park N Ride will be? That would be good to know a head of time for traffic purposes. Never having been at this festival do you have a map of the facility or locations of booths?

    • Hi Marian,
      Shuttles will run from various spots downtown all day Saturday and Sunday. Head towards Acworth Beach and look for the shuttle stop signs.

  4. Where can I find information about having a booth advertising my group, or is it already too late to have one?

  5. Will the boat ramp be open? We love to take our little Hobie sailboat out on this lake… no choppy waves from motor boats and PWCs.

    • Hi Dennis,
      We did not notice any private boats on the lake, so it appears it might be closed during the festival. Perhaps you could check with the event organizers at (770) 917-1234.

  6. Pil sung do martial arts of Dallas, Ga. will be performing at 2 and 3 on sunday. I have heard a lot of great things about them.

    • Hi Ben,
      We do not have any information about a fireworks show, so perhaps you could check with the event organizers at (770) 917-1234. If anyone reading this has more information, please let us know and we will update the article.

  7. We purchased a picture from one of the vendors that spelled words with various pictures of letters. We were very impressed by their product. Is there a way that we can get in touch with them for some additional pictures?

    Thank you,

  8. Is there a schedule available online that lists events and shows that will be going on at the festival?


    • Hi Katie,

      The Love the Lake Festival will feature two entertainment stages – the Gazebo Stage will feature Scott Thompson with his acoustic sounds on Saturday 11am to 3pm and Sunday noon to 4pm. The “Beach House Stage” will feature dance groups, school choruses, clogging groups, and local bands, however we were unable to find a schedule anywhere online.

      Third Annual CiCi’s Cup will take place on Saturday September 3rd on the beach at the Love the Lake Festival from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

      The Atlanta Ski Club will be out in full force with a full day Saturday and Sunday of water activities including wake board demonstrations, ski jumping competitions, skiing demonstrations and acrobatic skiing. The beautiful Lake Acworth will act as a back drop as they begin each day with a parade of boats!

      Saturday – September 3rd

      11:30 a.m. – Barefoot extravaganza! We plan on have a multiple skier “flying dock start’ as seen performed on Good Day Atlanta. We may ramp up a few other cool tricks as well! Bare footing is skiing with no ski, only your bare feet. The boat operates from 40-46 mph. we will have skiers that perform front and back footing, tumble turns, spins, and one footing, which includes crossing the wakes one footed!

      2:00 p.m. – Jumping – we have a pro jump ramp, we will have a multiple skier launch off the ramp and distance jumping. Some of our members can achieve 150 feet!

      4:30 p.m. – Skier pyramid, wakeboarding and air-chairing. Air-chair is cool, it is a big ski with a seat for the skier. And a large hydrofoil under the ski that allows the skier to feel like he is gliding above the surface of the water, no mater how rough, not to mention big air tricks.

      Sunday – September 4th

      1:00 p.m. – Jumping and multiple water skiers. Multi skiers will test skills of crossing wakes from side to side, crossing under the tow ropes! Looks great for spectators from any angle.

      3:00 p.m. – Trick skiing. This is a small board with no fins, (makes the board slippery) the boat runs about 16mph, and the skier performs a wide array of tricks. Much like wakeboarding but more elegant and graceful, tricks can be performed by holding the handle in your hands or with your foot (toeholds).
