Lions Community Fair
Don’t miss the 75th Annual Lions Fair This August! This year volunteers will once again transform Norman Myers Park into a fun filled carnival extravaganza that will run from Thursday August 21st through Sunday August 24th. The Overland Lions Fair has been a tradition for generations. It’s known for a wide array of carnival rides and games for all ages and this year will be no exception. This year's Fair will again have arm bands for unlimited rides available on Thursday evening (5pm - 9pm), Saturday (Noon – 5pm) and Sunday (12-5pm).
Great nightly music is another irresistible fixture at the fair so many look forward to. This year ‘Touch of Class’ will open the fair on Thursday, Grand Illusion (Friday) and Hush (on Saturday) will rock us all and White Noise will close the fair with us on Sunday. In honor of our 75th Anniversary, the Overland Lions Fair will hold their first parade! On Saturday the parade will leave the Overland Lions Hall on Lackland at 11am and will end at the fair grounds to open the fair. Want to be a part of it? Let the Lions know, we’d love to have you.
We hope to see you all at the fair this year! If you want to be part of their 75th Charity Fair as a supporting sponsor, by being in the parade or car show, joining in as a vendor, or by helping out as a volunteer you can ask a Lion, visit www.overlandlions.com or call (314) 429-2870.
