The Labor Day event kicks off Friday night and continues through Monday, with most activities at Zamberletti Park. Theme is Christmas in Westville.
“It’ll be great,” said Chad Sollars, first vice president with the Lions Club. “We try to gear the weekend to all ages.”
A new attraction this year is the Howl2GO: Dueling Pianos by Howl at the Moon, based in Indianapolis. The show will be from 7-10 p.m. Saturday at Zamberletti Park tennis court. Doors open at 6 p.m.
“We wanted something fresh and new and exciting,” Sollars said, adding the club booked the entertainment a year in advance.
It features two pianists and a drummer who take requests, involve the audience and get people onstage. “They know every song you can think of,” Sollars said. “They’re very entertaining.”
Cost is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. People are being seated at tables of eight; out of 40 tables, only six are left, he said. People may get tickets in groups or as individuals.
Another new attraction is the Redneck Rodeo, featuring a mechanical bull and a deejay. Admission is $2 at the door; rides are $5 each.
The family-friendly scavenger hunt will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, and people may drive, walk or use their golf carts.
Sunday ends with a bang at 8:30 p.m. when a huge fireworks display is set off at Westville High School. Ken Konsis donated money in memory of his wife, Lorna, who loved fireworks.
People may buy tickets and register for events at both sites.
