LakeFest Brings Community Together In Harveys Lake
HARVEYS LAKE — Organized by the Harveys Lake Recreational Committee, LakeFest, now in its fourth year, is designed as a weekend event to raise money and give back to the community.
“We started LakeFest so people knew it was open to the public, not just people who live here,” said Mike Rush, recreation committee chairman. “It’s meant for everyone to come and bring the community together. I am going to continue to keep this event going as long as I can because I want to keep supporting the children of the lake.”
The three-day event takes place near the Harveys Lake Boat Launch, pole 187, at the Harveys Lake Beach Club.
Saturday’s festivities featured a fine arts and music festival and a concert under the stars with Nashville artist Mike Lewis.
Ashley Lunger, of Hippie Henna Chick, was busy administering henna tattoos during the festival.
“This is my first year at LakeFest,” Lunger said. “It’s been going really well so far, especially because of the weather, because it’s so nice out. I really like henna because it’s temporary and you can keep reinventing the tattoos whenever you want. It doesn’t hurt that we’re on a beautiful lake with such a nice setup.”
LakeFest concludes today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a craft festival and a firefighters parade.
