30th Annual Lakewood Community Festival Caps Off Summer
Celebrate family, community and cultural heritage at the 30th annual Lakewood Community Festival on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at Madison Park, 13029 Madison Avenue. The day of fun and activities for the entire family will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine.
For the kiddos, the festivities will include craft and game booths, a bounce house, an inflatable obstacle course and children’s games.
The festival is known for a delicious array of foods including stuffed cabbage, pierogis, cabbage and noodles, potato pancakes and kielbasa with sauerkraut. There will be pizza, of course, and other dishes as well. Save room for traditional ethnic pastries and additional desserts.
Throughout the day musical entertainment will be provided by 2 Guys/12 Strings, Victor Samalot, Crawley & Hopper, Birdtown Boys, the Polka Pirates, The Riley Brothers and Euclid Squeezeboxers.
The City of Lakewood will be selling old street signs at the Community Festival for $25, cash only. They are in good condition and would make a one-of-a-kind gift for that person who is impossible to shop for.
The festival, sponsored by the Lakewood Community Festival, Inc. and the City of Lakewood, is traditionally the last event of the summer. Proceeds from the festival will be donated to various Lakewood community organizations.
Karen Karp is a Lakewood Community Festival board member.
