Lakewood Balmoral came out in record numbers for this year's
Harvest Moon Festival last Saturday!
The festival offered residents the opportunity to participate in 19 activities, ranging from perennial favorites like tractor-drawn hayrides, inflatable
slides and wine tasting, to new options including yoga, a yard sale redux (donation station) and an outdoor movie to end the night.
The beloved annual pie baking competition underwent a makeover courtesy of COVID,
and we crowned a new baking champion in our first ever cookie baking contest! The Savage Household delivered the winner, a chocolate peppermint patty cookie,
and will keep bragging rights for the next year!
A special thanks to the 15 sponsors who stepped up to sponsor activities and provide funds, making it possible for this year's admission to be free for LBRC members and their guests.
Thank you to everyone who 📷 participated in the day. We were thrilled to see everyone together enjoying our neighborhood and community.
