Lake Lenape Park East Hosts Wakeboard Competition and Food Truck Festival - July 27

Atlantic County will host The Wake Up Project’s second annual Wakeboard Competition and Food Truck Festival at Lake Lenape Park East in Mays Landing on Saturday, July 27 beginning at 9:30 AM.

The event combines water sports, family fun, and great food to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. The Wake Up Project was founded to honor the memory of local resident Cole Rocap who tragically took his own life in 2016.

The wakeboard competition will include divisions for all levels of experience, from beginner to expert. And there are expected to be as many as 10 food truck vendors on site. Mental health professionals will also be available to provide education and information.

“Our mission is to create an atmosphere where people can feel safe to talk about suicide and mental illness,” stated Vince Giardino of the Wake Up Project. “Lake Lenape has a rich history of water activities. We hope this event helps to continue those traditions while raising money for a great cause.”

Lake Lenape Park East is located at 753 Park Road in Mays Landing.
