HARVEYS LAKE — Brian Orbin wore a bright rainbow colored wig and his friend David Powell donned a horse head mask, adding to the fun of Lake Fest held Aug. 4-6.
The annual three-day event held at the Harveys Lake Beach Club, Pole 187 on Lakeside Dr., showcased the region’s creative spirit while raising funds to support Harveys Lake Borough community programs, such as the annual Halloween, Christmas and Easter parties for local children.
Over 20 vendors and artists featured their wares while hands-on demonstrations challenged the public to learn new skills such as leatherworking, woodworking, painting and much more.
Also, a new commemorative postcard, designed by Harveys Lake residents Darren and Lorraine Elias, was available for purchase as was a collector postage stamp created by Bonnie Covaleski.
Lake Fest was previously called the Harveys Lake Homecoming Weekend, but people outside the area shied away from the event, thinking it was only for borough residents.
Three years ago, the event’s name was changed to Lake Fest to encourage more people to attend and join in the lakeside fun.
