The 10th Annual Lakefest took over Barker’s Island, Saturday.

Visitors to the one day event were treated to live music and free games and prizes.

The festival put on by a group of local churches also provided free school supplies to those in need, as well as diapers and non-perishable foods.

Organizer Rose Ligman said the idea of providing school supplies came to her when she visited a ministry in New Orleans that held a similar event.

Ligman says the school supplies are the most popular attraction, because they cost families the most at this time of year.
