First Lakeville Day set for March 26

Mar 14, 2023

The Park Commission invites the community to celebrate the Town of Lakeville at the first-ever Lakeville Day celebration on March 26 at Ted Williams Camp from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event aims to promote the town’s offerings. 

“We want to bring people in to see what the park has to offer,” said Park Commission member Melisa Turcotte.

The Park Commission is bringing organizations to the celebration free of charge, as long as they provide some form of entertainment, Turcotte said.

One such example of entertainment on tap is an inflatable obstacle course from Winberg’s True Value. Lakeville Athletic Club will provide tennis, pickleball, and horseshoe clinics at noon, and Hillary Woods will offer photoshoots throughout the day.

The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will also be present, performing a flag ceremony and hosting candy bingo, respectively. Lakeville Police and Fire departments will be represented. 

This event is the first one put on by the current members of the Park Commission, Turcotte said.

The family-friendly event will also feature a beer and wine garden for the adults, with Turcotte saying that there will be something for everyone.

Depending on how the first edition goes, Lakeville residents could see this event become a yearly tradition in town.
