DALLAS - July 4, 2016 - Hooray for Hollywood! Lakewood transformed into the Hollywood Hills this weekend. The theme of the auction party that will kick off this year’s 40th Annual Lakewood Home Festival was unveiled on Monday's Lakewood Fourth of July parade with a movie-themed float sponsored by Comerica Bank®. The entourage rolled down the parade route as Lakewood Early Childhood PTA (LECPTA) members danced to iconic movie soundtracks and their children delighted crowds by throwing Red Velvet Rope Twizzlers and Pop Rocks and handing out fans.
The Lakewood Home Festival began in 1976 when the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA staged a tour showcasing five distinctive and historic neighborhood homes as a fundraiser to purchase playground equipment for kindergarten children. Last year we exceeded fundraising expectations for Lakewood Elementary, J.L. Long Middle School, and Woodrow Wilson High School. It has evolved into a series of fantastic events and activities listed below:
Our volunteers and corporate partners make this festival great! The success depends on the dedication and generosity of volunteers. We partner with neighbors, friends, families, and groups who volunteer to staff the homes and the Auction Party. Contribute to your community and sign up today!
