I wanted to say “Thank you” to all that came out and enjoyed the 60th Zionsville Lions Club Fall Festival.
The weekend began with our VIP Carnival where more than 1,000 participants enjoyed a festival atmosphere catered specifically for their special needs family members.
Saturday morning was a real thrill for me to be a part of the parade and see the thousands of people from our community lining the streets. Our Lions float had several teen Alpha Leos Club board members and all seven of the Lions Lifetime Members.
Saturday entertainment was wonderful with live, beautiful music from the Zionsville Community High School Band, ZCHS Royalaires and Choralaires, along with middle school orchestras. The very popular kid’s corner with the colorful inflatables, along with the rides and games in the carnival area kept the children entertained all weekend. Saturday evening we had live music “At the Hops Lounge” for the adults and LeoPalooza in the Gazebo for the teens.
Sunday morning was the very inspirational Spokes of Hope Bike Race with the racing survivors leading the pack down Main Street. We had 76 hot rods for our car show, which may have been our best collection of classics ever. The festival wrapped up with the crowning of our 2014 Miss Fall Festival Outstanding Teen, Paige Harder, a ZCHS student.
The Lions Club would like to thank our Partners in the Park sponsors whose support makes these events possible. None of this fun could have taken place without the Fall Festival Committee who worked many hours in preparation. We also would like to recognize the youth in the Zionsville Alpha Leos Club, Boy Scout Troops No. 358 and No. 804 for their efforts during the weekend.
Thank you again for making the 60th Fall Festival a huge success!
Zionsville Lions Club president
