Lakeside Emporium Autumn Fest (LEAF)
Mark your calendars! Lakeside Emporium is holding its 1st annual Lakeside Emporium Autumn Fest – you know…L.E.A.F.!! (Sound familiar L.E.A.P. fans?) One of the highlights will be the Lakeside Emporium Sweetest Day Parade to be held on Saturday, October 15th at 9:30 am.
The purpose of this autumn parade is to serve as a “harvest “ for those in need in our community. Those groups and marching units that have been invited to participate have been collecting food items and new/unused winter wear (coats, gloves, mittens, hats, scarves), that will be distributed to The Kids’ Food Basket and other area food banks and shelters. The groups’ donations will be paraded along the route via carts, wagons, etc. Parade watchers are encouraged to bring items as well and present them after the parade at the Lakeside Emporium.
Although the parade is short (from McCracken to Torrent), we are hoping this will be a fun event to benefit a really good cause. At the conclusion of the parade (Emporium parking lot), some performers will play again so that the audience will have another chance to enjoy the performances.
So….Come one, come all Saturday, October 15th with step-off at 9:30 am.
Those in the parade are there by invitation only so if you or your group would like to march and haven’t been contacted, please contact Laureen Samples at 231-755-9933.
