BBBS of the Laurel Region’s new community party will be its largest event yet

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Laurel Region (BBBSLR) has  reimagined its summer community fundraiser into an unforgettable event featuring entertainment  and activities for children and adults alike. Dubbed “Summer Fest”, the free event will take place  on Sunday, June 5th from 12:00-5:00pm at Twin Lakes Park, utilizing Pavilion 7, the activities  building, and the stage. 

Summer Fest will offer free and low-cost activities for children, such as character visits, games,  sand art, face painting, a bounce house, Pokemon party, and much more! Adults will enjoy the  BYOB feature, cornhole tournament, live music, Bingo, and the opportunity to purchase  concessions, food truck meals, and swag throughout the day. Even dogs can get in on the fun at  the Dog Activity Area! 

With the uniqueness of the event, Executive Director, Stephanie Babich Mihleder, and the team  at BBBSLR are more than ready to share it with the community.

“I think our team and Board  excel at looking at things with fresh eyes and not just doing the status quo, ” said Mihleder.  “There is truly something for everyone at Summer Fest; and people can come and enjoy an  incredible day without spending a dime.”
