First Things First
Time flies when you’re having fun! In my case, though, a few demands and obligations over the last few weeks put me dreadfully behind with my Lewisville photos. For those of you who have been awaiting shots of several mid-September Lewisville events, I do apologize. Hopefully, I’ll be getting back on track.
The Best of Lewisville Festival
It’s one thing to know Lewisville is a special town, but it’s wonderful to celebrate some of what makes Lewisville a great place to live, work or go to school. The first annual Best of Lewisville Festival took place in Shallowford Square on September 19, 2009. The four-hour event was sponsored by Karate International of Lewisville and MediaFit.
You might say the festival’s atmosphere was akin to a mini-fair, with varied energetic activities, along with food, pop music, and a number of local vendors. Plus, contests were held for the best flowers, art, food, essay, citizen — and even the prettiest baby.
As I strolled through the Square, the sights and sounds of the festival were delightful. Children were playing on the big blow-up, or they were competing in laser tag, the three-legged race, or the cornhole tournament. Some even crawled into the hamster ball and took a rolling adventure across the Square. Other children and adults participated in karate and clogging demonstrations.
The word is that this is only the beginning of the Best of Lewisville Festival. With the great organization and enthusiasm that went into this first celebration, we can eagerly anticipate what next year’s celebration will bring. Thanks for a great day in Lewisville!
