This annual event will take place on Wed., Aug. 7 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Lake Hiawatha Park (2701 E. 44th St.).

Kids can look forward to pony rides (under 10 years old), face painting, hair painting, games

Vendors will sell food, including pizza, hot dogs, mini-donuts, ice cream, yogurt, and pop. If you would like a table to promote a business or organization, e-mail Joyce Boettcher at lhfest@yahoo.com. Volunteers will be needed the day of the festival for setting up tables and chairs.
