Councilwoman Mary C. Woolridge (D-3) is encouraging everyone to kick off their summer fun this weekend with the 2011 Shively Festival on Friday and Saturday June 24th and 25th.

“The city of Shively continues to do a wonderful job of bringing together food, fun and festivities for the entire family,” says Woolridge. “The 2011 Shively Festival is a good way to enjoy the summer for the last weekend in June.”

This year’s Shively Festival begins at 6:00pm on Friday, June 24th with rides and vendors at the Shively City Hall, 3920 Dixie Highway. Activities will also be held at the Shively Park Tennis Courts. There will also be a photography contest judging and a bake off contest to highlight the evening.

There will also be a Karaoke contest and live music featured during the evening.

The event continues on Saturday morning, June 25th with a pancake breakfast served by the Shively Lions Club from 7:00am to 11:00am in the Community Building at 1901 Park Road. The cost is $5 per person. All proceeds will help support the groups with their charitable programs.

“I would encourage everyone to take advantage of the good pancake breakfast that will be offered. The members of the Shively Lions Club do very good work in our community and they need our help to continue to do their work to help others,” says Woolridge.

On Saturday, the Shively Festival will feature a Cornhole tournament, poker tournament and a dunking booth along with vendors and rides. The live music continues on Saturday and the Festival ends with a spectacular fireworks show.

The Councilwoman is a sponsor of the Shively Festival. Her office will maintain a booth during the weekend.
