Looking for something fun to do in East Dallas this weekend? Come check out the 34th annual Lakewood Home Festival! The festival, which is put on by the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA, benefits neighborhoodpublic schools: Lakewood Elem., J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School. The festival which kicks off Friday night with a candlelight tour of homes and an auction party themed “Viva Las Lakewood”, includes an artisan market at Lakewood Elementary and a tour of 6 of the most beautiful homes in the city.
Last year’s festival raised $103,000 for our schools, quite an accomplishment for a group of volunteers! I have to admit, I’m partial to this organization, having served on the board and on the festival committee for three years. It takes a lot of hard work to put together and it is an amazing feat when you consider how many people attend every year and who come from all over to enjoy the festivities! Here’s a link to the website http://www.lecpta.org/lakewoodhomefestival/default.htm.
Here is some information about the homes that are on tour this year, hope to see you there!

An interesting, eclectic, hill country update to a traditional 50’s ranch. The homeowner is a master gardener; so the home lends itself to an indoor/outdoor feel with many “green” details and serious southern charm.

**BONUS HOUSE** Truly incredible home, completely redone, including an elevator and wine room, tucked away behind a canopy of trees, with beautiful grounds, will be a special addition for our candlelight ticket holders.
