As your 2013 Lakefair President, I and all of my fellow Capitalarians invite you to join us in celebrating the 56th year of Capital Lakefair.
Our Festival offers five days of live entertainment, local arts and crafts for sale, and great food from the many non-profit organizations. These organizations use Lakefair each year as their major source of fund raising for their yearly activities. And of course don't forget the spectacular fireworks that ends the Capital Lakefair Festival each year.
Capitalarians partner with the Little Red School House to aid low-income students with needed school supplies and clothing, with the YWCA with non-food essentials, our local food bank and with Veteran's organizations to help with their projects in aiding local Veterans. Let's not forget the "Teddy Bear Project" that helped provide teddy bears to local Fire Departments and Law Enforcement Agencies to comfort young trauma victims.
Local high schools provide nominees for our Lakefair Royalty and those chosen are presented scholarships for them to the colleges of their choice.
The Lakefair Queen and her Royal Court have the previlege to represent the three cities (Lacey/Olympia/Tumwater) at many other festivals and events throughout the year not only in Washington, but in Oregon and Canada.
Capitalarians and many local volunteers consider it an honor to give their time, efforts, talents, financial support, sweat and sometimes tears to you, our community, to provide five days of just good old fashioned fun.
We give thanks to you, our community, who have helped make Capital Lakefair a huge success since 1957.
I hope to see you at Lakefair by Olympia'a beautiful Capital Lake during this years Festival from July 17 - 21.
2013 Capital Lakefair President
