The local Lions Club surpassed its goal Saturday, hosting over 261 floating devices on Kawkawa Lake during its first-ever Hope Floats Festival.
Participants of all ages floated in the water under an orange-hued smoky sky, while music played at the free event.
There were contests and prizes and the Hope Lions Club served barbecued food.
Organizer with the Lions Shannon Jones said the goal was to have 250 floaters out on the water. With 261 floating according to one count, the goal was surpassed.
