Ashley Westbrook, Parks and Recreation supervisor for the Lakeside Community Center said along with a full breakfast, snacks and activities, there are many other things that make this event special.

“We have performances by the Tumble Wee Dance, the Lakeside librarian did story time and the Pickwick Players performing carols,” she said.

Everyone that came in received a raffle ticket, which she said gave away anything from free backpacks to a San Diego Chargers 2015 Antonio Gates Laser Ball, along with four tickets to Urban Jungle.

Westbrook said it was a delight and a big help to have the Miss Lakeside court there to help with all of the festivities and engage with the children. Louis Stelzer County Park Ranger Alex Gilbert, had a touch table of animals of the region along with his rosy boa, a popular treat for the kids. With the event focusing on the programs of Lakeside Parks and Recreation and health and wellness, the morning was abuzz with the many activities this annual event offers the community of Lakeside.
