It was as if someone had ordered the perfect day for us to kick off our new and improved NOHOA Community Fair, renamed North Oaks Summerfest. The day began with an invigorating run around Pleasant Lake, a lively parade down West Pleasant and wound down with food truck goodies and cold beverages. The fair presented fun for all. 

The new addition of a beer and wine tent, food trucks and adult games, including Hammerschlagen, and the drone demonstration were well received! Refreshments and food were enjoyed while the DJ entertained all, young and old alike. We had all shapes and sizes of dogs at the dog show, and it was well worth it to watch. The bouncy houses, face painter and balloon artist were busy entertaining throughout the festival creating works of art, the train for children and adults alike provided extra fun and the weather was just hot enough to make the ice cream a perfect treat. 

Special thanks to the community organizations and the Natural Resources Commission, who were all on hand to answer questions and promote community involvement.   

We would like to recognize and thank all the sponsors and volunteers for helping us in making the Summerfest a big success. This event would not have been a success without the generous support you have provided us.
