December 8-10: Last Weekend to Visit the Lakefront This Fall

The weather looks great for a visit to FSU’s Lakefront Park this weekend. Come out to the lake and enjoy temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Watercraft rentals are still suspended due to low water levels, but come out for a game of disc golf, sand volleyball, and plenty of room to relax. The Lakefront Park is open this Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., then closed until after the holiday break. Fall graduates: This is your last chance to check the Lakefront off your FSU Bucket List for free!
