The event will be hosted on Saturday April 27 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at John Tanner State Park. Students are allowed to drive themselves, but the school will provide a shuttle to the park every 30 minutes from the TLC bus stop. WGO has hosted Lake Days in the past, but with this being so close to finals, it gives students more incentives to attend.
