Fun on the Water
There are over 50 lakes within a 10-mile radius of Fenton, making it easy to find the perfect place to splash around on a summer day. The closest of these lakes is, of course, Lake Fenton. Located in the center of the city, this lake has over 11 miles of shoreline, making Lake Park one of the most popular destinations for Fenton residents during the warm summer months. With a municipal beach and plenty of picnic areas, it is the perfect place for those looking to make memories while spending a day in the sun.
Take a Taste at the F
No matter your preference, the Fenton Winery and Brewery (FWB) has something for you. At their winery, they import juices from around the world to create 20 unique wines. Three of these wines can always be found on tap at the winery, and the others are all available for tasting at the bar or for purchase by the bottle. If beer is more your thing, then take a sip of one of FWB's home-brewed beers. These are available at the FWB Lounge, but they have become so popular that you can actually find them on tap at many local restaurants as well.
One of Fenton's favorite festivals, St. John's Applefest has been an annual event for over 50 years. Families, friends, and neighbors all gather together each fall for this fun event full of live music, contests, carnival rides, and, of course, baking contests. The Apple Pie Baking Contest is the most anticipated part of the festival, where residents from all over Fenton compete with their very best recipes. In fact, over 1,000 apple pies are baked for the contest and festival each year. So grab the family, and make sure to come hungry to the annual St. John Applefest.
