Dust off your leisure suit and get ready to boogie.
In customary fashion, Lakewood Early Childhood PTA (LECPTA) unveiled the theme of the 39th annual Lakewood Home Festival at this weekend’s Lakewood Fourth of July parade with a solid gold “Friday Night Fever” themed float sponsored by Comerica Bank.
The moving discotheque boogied down the parade route as LECPTA members danced to “YMCA” and “Funky Town” while their kids threw Blow Pops to the crowd and handed out fans.
The Lakewood Home Festival, which supports neighborhood schools, kicks off Friday, Nov. 13, with the Friday Night Fever auction party, followed by the annual home tour on Saturday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m.–5 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 15 from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. The candlelight tour will take place on Saturday evening from 6–9 p.m.
This year’s auction party, sponsored by Dave Perry-Miller & Associates, will open its doors on Friday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. at the Belo Mansion & Pavilion, 2101 Ross, in the Dallas Arts District. The auction party sells out every year, so buy tickets early. Doors close at 12:30 a.m.
Auction party tickets are $125 in advance and $175 at the door — if they’re not already sold out. The party ticket includes an “all-weekend pass” with access to the home tour and candlelight tour. A limited number of Solid Gold VIP lounge party tickets will be $200 in advance and $250 at the door.
Home tour tickets range from $15 to $30 and are available on the website.
