As you can see, we have something for everyone’s tastes, the most important point I would like to emphasize, is that the Lakeside Family Festival has always tried to present a weekend of activities that all family members can enjoy. We demand a safe and secure environment–absolutely no alcoholic beverages are allowed on the grounds.
This year our festival chairperson is Joe Martino, he feels that this is an important endeavor our church community has undertaken for 36 years. The cooperation and help that is offered by the parish community is absolutely outstanding! We have added many new names to the helpers and chairpersons for the midway, assorted booths, personnel, security, parking and clean up details.
Whenever we need help to run the booths, we always have a strong group of volunteers from our parish, that sign up to lend their assistance, for the many hours that need to be covered. Our main goal is to have a family festival where people of all ages can come together and have a fun-filled time.
