Community Events

Over the years our community has enjoyed traditional joyous events, unique to this community.  Below is a listing of the major events happening each year.  Please note that some of these may have already happened this year, but there is a place on your calendar to get out and enjoy the same event next year.  If you would like to support or help with these events, please don't hesitate to contact the Echo Lost Lake Community Group.

Echo Lake Community Blood Drive

A Blood Drive that is just 5 minutes from home!  That was our vision in 2020, however, mobile blood drives have been on hold the past few years. Staying in touch with Bloodworks NW, we were finally able to put a date on the calendar.

to bring our first blood drive to Echo Lake Community

Events already in the history book

Unfortunately, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer can't lead the boats and kayaks through the growing ice cover that now blankets Echo Lake.  The bonfires are also cancelled as ice and possible snow on the ground could be dangerously treacherous.

The folks around Echo Lake host an annual Holiday Boat Parade and this is the 4th year! 

Thanks to the homeowners from Echo Lake Community who put on this show every year! It is such fun and a great way to bring people together for a little holiday cheer. 

The email for inquiries is:


We thank members of the Echo Lake Community for their interest in participating in this Community event.  

The holiday boats have been a special tradition for the Echo Lake residents and it will surely be missed this year. The good news is that the elves are readying the sleigh and Santa has Rudolph to lead the sleigh around the world next week.

Echo Lake Community Group wishes you and yours a safe and Happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!   

Block Party & Artisan Fair

August 14, 2022   3pm-7pm

Each year our community comes together for an afternoon to enjoy a community fair, enjoy the company of friends and neighbors while celebrating Summer.  With free admission there is a huge raffle, games and rides for the kids and adult artisan gift shopping for the adults and live music to set the mood.  

Informational tables for everyone to see and talk to the experts.  We have had local artists, political leaders and local leaders on hand to answer questions and report on our future.

Of course, there is a food drive happening to support the local food bank.  The county Fire & Rescue trucks, Sheriff and County Communications vehicles and staff are available for your review.

Community Food Drive

Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Part of being a caring community includes helping those in need of basic food items.  While we include food drive efforts into every public event throughout the year, during the holidays we focus on this need.

The Echo Lake Community Group (ELCG) will be collecting donations on behalf of Maltby Food Bank for holiday distribution to local families who are “food insecure.” Too many families have basic unmet needs for both food and personal care items, including socks, soap, and tissues. During your holiday shopping, pick up a few extra items for your cart. Email, notifying us of your donation; place items in a protective plastic grocery bag, and leave the plastic bag by your mailbox post before 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 30, for pick-up. You may also deliver to the donation bin at Maltby Food Bank, 21104 86th Ave. SE (near Maltby Café) by December 18. Monetary donations can be made here. Together we can make the holidays a little more comfortable for those who struggle just to provide basic needs. 

Food Needed Mayo or Salad Dressing, Sugar, Syrup, Cocoa, Hamburger Helper, Dinners (Ravioli, Spaghetti-O, etc.), Dry Chicken Noodle Soup, Rice-A-Roni, Pasta Helper, Baked Beans, Relishes or Pickles, Pears, Cranberry Sauce, and Oatmeal.  Non-Food Items Needed: SOCKS (remember TOEvember-November), Kleenex, Toothpaste, Shampoo, Hand Soap (bottled and bar), Dish Soap, Deodorant, envelopes or containers.


November 2022

'MOvember' is an annual event that involves growing out a moustache for the month of November to raise awareness of and support men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health. It is especially meant to increase early detection, diagnosis, and effective treatment and "change the face of men's health.

'MOvember' is a month to give thanksgiving for all we have and to share from our bounty with those who have so much less.  Movember is a portmanteau of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, "MO" and "November."

'TOEvember' helps us remember those who face the holidays with unmet simple needs, such as socks for warm comfort. Donate new socks to non-profit service organizations, such as Maltby Food Bank, who recently gave away their last remaining pair.

Horseback Carolers on Parade

December 10, 2022

Photos of this event can be seen HERE.

In 2020, a local horse-riding club offered to come and sing holiday carols on horseback as they sauntered through our community. They started this event to bring cheer to local communities during the pandemic but also to collect food donations for a local food bank. Kids and adults alike came to see this unique and festive event.

Echo Lake Community Group is happy to welcome them back for the 3rd year in 2022. Family, neighbors, and friends are all welcome to stand along the parade route to enjoy this spectacular event. Due to the lack of shoulders on our roadways, we are designating certain viewing areas.

They will have someone taking your food bank donations along the route and there will also be a place for them to be dropped off at the church between 11:30 - 1:30.

For more information about joining the parade with your horse or to ask any other questions, email
