Volunteers needed for upcoming Lake in the Hills festival

LAKE IN THE HILLS – There are about two weeks until the 2014 Summer Sunset Festival, and the event is in need of more volunteers.

A call out from the Algonquin/Lake in the Hills Chamber of Commerce has indicated volunteers are still needed for a multitude of capacities for the weekend-long event, including positions in carnival wristband sales, over-21 beer bracelet sales, wine tasting events, the kids' tent, and clean-up.

Specifically with regard to the Kids' Korner, volunteers are needed from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. At least two people need to cover each block of time.

The chamber also has indicated any business, individual or not-for-profit organization is welcome to volunteer. Volunteers representing a business or organization are encouraged to bring promotional materials and wear their respective logos to the festival. 

The festivities commence with food vendors and a beer garden at 3 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, and wrap up after a 9:30 p.m. fireworks show Sunday, Aug. 31. In between, event goers can look forward to carnival rides, wine tasting, a Sunset 5K, music, a kid station, among much more.

The festival will be held at Sunset Park, 5200 Miller Rd. in Lake in the Hills.

Interested parties should contact Elizabeth Wakeman at Directions to the park and a schedule of activities can be found on the event's webpage.
