Lake of Illumination: We have asked the Baldwin Lake Association and people from our community to decorate their pontoons/boats to create the “Lake of Illumination” event. This event will take place on Thursday, August18th from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Awards will be given in several categories.
Traffic will be directed down to the lake from the corner of Baldwin St. and South St. Traffic will go past Tower Mountain (ski hill) around Manoka Lake and then will proceed around Baldwin Lake with traffic going only one way exiting onto Marvel Drive. During the event, traffic flows clockwise around Baldwin Lake. Traffic is only able to enter from the intersection of Baldwin & South Streets and only exiting toward Marvel Drive. Same route as 2015. Asking for the following street closure for exiting traffic only: Road needs to be closed where Marvel Dr. and South St. meet. (top of the Country Club hill) (Same as 2015)
