Looing for a fun event to attend this weekend? Check out the 35th Annual Lakewood Home Festival November 11-13.

Hosted by the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA (LECPTA), the Lakewood Home Festival is a community-wide event that raises funds for Lakewood Elementary School, J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School. The funds directly benefit students through the purchase of school materials, computers and enrichment programs as well as the International Baccalaureate program. Last year s Home Festival raised approximately $144,000.

We are thrilled with the homes on tour this year as well as 60-plus unique local vendors at our market, said Lori Volney, 2011-12 LECPTA President. We could not make this event possible without the hundreds of volunteers that run this event.

In addition to touring the Lakewood homes, visitors can shop at the Holiday Market, sponsored by the Ebby Lakewood office, located at Lakewood Elementary. The Holiday Market will feature more than 60 local artists, a Café featuring Penne Pomodoro, and is the location of the Auction Party on Friday night, November 11. This year s Auction Party theme is a Jimmy Buffet tribute: Lakewoodville: Livin in Paradise .

Come experience a weekend full of community traditions, neighborhood support, and camaraderie. Tickets for the Lakewood Home Festival are sold at Lakewood Elementary School, located at 3000 Hillbrook, Tom Thumb (21 locations), White Rock Coffee, The T Shop, The Corner Market, and Mockingbird Florist as well as at each tour home during the event.
