Lakeside is challenging families to enter a poster in new competition titled, ‘Can’t Wait for Lakeside to Open the Summer Season’ Poster Contest.

Families are encouraged to work together to create a foam board poster displaying what they are looking forward to this summer at Lakeside. The artwork can be a drawing, painting, collage, mural or story about what your family loves about Lakeside.

The goal of this contest is to share our community’s love and passion for different experiences in Lakeside.  

Entries must be created or mounted to a 20″ x 30″ foam board poster, which can be found at office supply stores or major retailers.

The ‘Can’t Wait for Lakeside to Open the Summer Season’ poster boards will be displayed in the Hoover Auditorium lobby throughout Memorial Day weekend, the 2015 Bonus Weekend and during Labor Day weekend.

The poster boards will be judged by the community during Memorial Day weekend, and awards will be announced at the Jack Hanna “Into the Wild – Live” show at 7 p.m. Sunday, May 24.

Ballots will be available at the Hoover Information Desk during the Friday, May 22 and Saturday, May 23 Hoover performances.
