Michael Phelps to headline Crystal Lagoon grand opening Saturday


Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps will splash down Saturday at the Crystal Lagoon in Wesley Chapel’s Epperson development.

Phelps, a global ambassador for Crystal Lagoons, will appear at the grand opening of the first Crystal Lagoon built in the U.S. It is located at Metro Development Group’s 2,000-home Epperson development, about three miles north of State Road 54 at the corner of Curley and Overpass roads.

Phelps’ appearance is part of a tropical-themed celebration featuring water ski shows, fly-boarding performances and mermaids in the lagoon. The event is noon to 6 p.m. Free parking and free admission is provided. Event planners said attendance is near capacity, but people can register online to join a waiting list at LagoonEvent.com.
