It is a fun event for families and adults that allows attendees to experience and learn more about Galveston Bay, the largest bay in Texas and one of the most productive estuaries in the country! Bay Day highlights include hands-on, interactive exhibits, activities and demonstrations that emphasize the beauty and value of Galveston Bay.
2013 Bay Day
The 2013 Bay Day Festival took place on June 1, at the Kemah Boardwalk. This free family event drew in people from across the region who came to celebrate Galveston Bay! Local exhibitors showed children and adults how important Galveston Bay is in our everyday lives. Attendees interacted with different types of bay wildlife including live crabs, fish, oysters, snakes, and alligators; learned about the local watershed; and even made their own fish print t-shirts to take home. Thanks to all of our sponsors and volunteers who continue to make Bay Day a success!
Bay Day is made possible thanks to our many generous sponsors, including:
