Festival of the Lakes Opens to Sparse Crowds

18 Jul

Smokey Robinson brought the fans to Festival of the Lakes today despite high temperatures.  Nonetheless, crowds were sparse in other areas of the festival.  Whether security concerns or the high cost of parking kept families away, one Festival worker reported that she never saw a line at a single ride.  Parking was still available in the main lots at 8:00 pm as the concert began.  Many families were walking to avoid the $15 parking fee. Several neighborhood businesses offered $10 parking.

If you attended the Festival of the Lakes last night, we would love to hear your comments.

Porter County Fair Features Hunter Hayes

8 Jul

The Porter County Fair begins from July 18 and provides non-stop family fun until July 27, 2013.  He apparently is Wanted because tickets for Hunter Hayes at the Porter County Fair are sold out. (Sources tell me they may be available online at a premium.) Hunter Hayes is the headliner to to this family fun fest but additional features include rides, 4-H exhibits and awards, family fun and music.  .  For more information you can go to The Porter County Fair website.
