The 45th Annual Lennon Lions Homecoming gets underway on Saturday with the Kickoff Parade at 11am downtown.
Numerous activities will fill the day, all conveniently situated at Lions Park, including new events like the Venice Township Fire 2-man horseshoe tournament and the Venice Township Fire water slide. The annual antique tractor pull has been a sight to behold for all 45 years, and this year, the kiddie tractor pull features a new cement pad.
Face painting, a pie eating contest, bounce house, Bingo and the Kids Coin Scramble fill out the family event, and if all the fun isn't enough of a draw, bring the kids for a vision screening thanks to the Lions Project "Kid Sight."
The band Paving Allison will play live on Saturday night beginning at 7:30pm, leading into even more Lennon Lions events scheduled for Sunday.
