The Crescent Beach Lifeguard Corp. is to host its annual Waterfront Festival July 31.

The event, set for 1-5 p.m. at the foot of Sullivan Street, aims to highlight the importance of being safe while enjoying activities on and around the water, said Crescent Beach head lifeguard Jason Carter.

“It’s geared towards educating kids and families on water safety… and having fun on the beach for the day,” he said.
