Part of that excitement is thanks to the great line up of entertainment at this year’s event.
“We have great entertainment this year,” said Lapeer Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Neda Payne.
Entertainment at the expo, which will be held at the Center for Innovation – West Campus, 170 Millville Rd. (the former Lapeer West High School), will be spread throughout the building, and guests can enjoy a variety of acts hourly.
Set to entertain is the group are performers from L.A. Dance and On-Pointe Dance Studio. Elvis “Elize” is in the building thanks to the Dixon Shades of Elvis Tribute Artist. Band ensembles from Lapeer Schools will demonstrate their musical talent and for the more actively inclined, a group from KMAI (Korean Martial Arts Institute) will demonstrate a new form of workout called Barrobics.
Also set to make an appearance are SpongeBob Squarepants and Frozen’s Elsa. Free face painting, balloon animals, a photo booth, a bounce house donated by Lapeer Rent-All and kids activities, like a workshop set up by Home Depot are all part of the fun. Gerlach’s Bowling Center will also have a mock bowling alley for visitors to test their talent.
Community members will also want to be sure to check out the Drive for Your Community Event hosted by Milnes Ford in Lapeer. Ford is donating $20 up to $6,000 for each test drive taken on Sunday, which will go to the Lapeer Fireworks fund.
View Newspaper Group will be on hand with balloons for the kids, a keychain, flashlight, bottle opener giveaway, a chance to win a free County Press subscription and a giant mock front page for guests to pose behind.
There are more than 60 door prizes available for attendees to win and vendors are eligible for an advertising prize package sponsored by VIEW Newspaper Group and Townsquare Media that is valued at $1,501.
The expo is free and open to the public. “It’s a fun, feel good day,” added Payne. Call 810-664 6641 for more information.
