Remember, the beach is a summer swim zone, so bring your suit and towel and make a day of it. A summer dam creates a calm swim area perfect for kids and families. Swim boundaries are clearly marked, and Regional Parks' lifeguards are on duty daily in July and August.

Water Carnival proceeds benefit the Russian River Water Safety Patrol, which provides loaner life vests and water safety education to river visitors.

Water Carnival sponsors include the City of Healdsburg, Russian River Adventures, Sonoma County Water Agency, Sonoma County Waste Management Agency, Syar Industries, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Brush Bernard Certified Public Accountants and the Heck Foundation.

See you on the beach!
