2012 Riverside Park Fall Festival


The City of Lake Charles, KZWA 104.9 FM, the Kiwanis Club Lake Charles-North, 100 Black Men of Metro Lake Charles, Lake Charles-North Redevelopment Authority, and Contraband Days are sponsoring the 1st Annual Riverside Fall Festival at the new Riverside Park, located on the beautiful Calcasieu River at the west end of Fitzenreiter Road. 


Everyone is invited to come on out this coming Saturday, October 27, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in celebration of the park's first anniversary.  There will be food, music, and outdoor fun for the entire family.  Bring your lawn chair, blanket, kids, friends, and have a great time with free food, music, and fun.  KZWA's own Diva D will be there with a live broadcast of her Zydeco Workout Show, so bring your dance partner and get your zydeco workout on the bayou.


There will be transportation for those who need it throughout the park but, if you can, please walk along the river and enjoy the true beauty of the northern part of the City's Louisiana riverfront, bayou, and swamp.  There is also going to be a sauce picante cook-off.  The theme for the cook-off will be, "If you find my socks in there, give em back because I know I put my foot in it!"  First prize will be a pair of socks that'll be found in the best sauce picante in town.  If you want to put your foot in it, just sign up your team.  There is no fee to participate.  The only requirement is that cook-off participants serve their prepared food to the people partying in the park.  And, oh yes, fishermen, crabbers, and even boat people are invited to help us celebrate a true treasure of Lake Charles.


The Lake Charles-North Kiwanis Club will also hold its annual Walk for Education, so bring your family and friends to walk along the river for a good cause while you look at some of the most beautiful bayou and moss hung trees that give North Lake Charles a Taste of Louisiana. 


That's Saturday, October 27, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Riverside Park. 

SEE YOU THERE!
