Off saturday Maybe I will see you there.
THIS WEEKEND - LAKEWOOD HOME FESTIVAL - now also raising money for J. L. Long:
This fall, come celebrate 30 years of tradition at the Lakewood Home Festival in Dallas, TX. Located in the East Dallas area, the Home Festival is three days of fun events that benefit the community.
ABOUT THE WEEKEND
To begin the Festival, an exclusive Candlelight Tour of the Homes is held Friday night, followed by the Casino Party and Auction.
On Saturday and Sunday, start the day off by visiting the popular Café, where tempting aromas and delectables are offered for even the finickiest palate.
Next, it's off to The Market that hosts over sixty different vendors, including award-winning artists and juried craftspeople. The Market is a long-time favorite of neighborhood residents who look forward to finding that special holiday gift (or a gift for themselves!).
And we can't forget our premier event - the Lakewood Home Tour featuring five architecturally distinctive homes in the Lakewood area. Come visit a slice of history in Dallas and see some truly spectacular homes.
Attended by over 4000 patrons each year, the Lakewood Home Festival is a great place to have your name recognized in the community (and support a great cause at the same time!). If you would like more info about becoming a sponsor, email us or visit our Sponsors section.

The 1945 Neoclassical (on Tokalon - the prettiest street in Dallas) is the 'ancestral' home of one of my best friends - we went all the way from kindergarten to senior year together. Then he disgraced us by becoming an aggie and then redeemed himself somewhat by going to UT for grad school. Not that I'm a UT fan...
The 1933 Italian Renaissance (on Lakewood Blvd) is the former home of one of my sister's classmates.
The 1927 Colonial Revival (on Avalon) is the Fretz home (heard of Fretz Park?).

Not too many days ago, we mentioned a series of glimpses at the houses that make up this year’s Lakewood Home Festival.
Kimberly Sinnott of the Lakewood Early Childhood PTA stepped up to provide a weekly description of the homes and to provide a photograph of each.
We’ll do this once a week for the seven or so weeks leading up to the home tour, which takes place Nov. 12-14.
Take it away, Kim …
6650 Lakewood Blvd.
This stately Spanish eclectic home, built in 1924, draws the eye at curbside with interesting lines, intricate iron accents, and flawless tile roof. The 4,000-square-foot home has been beautifully updated, giving the traditional home a unique, modern flair and creating a light, casual, and spacious ambiance.
Throughout the home, family antique furnishings complement contemporary, masculine pieces, and paintings of dogs and cats adorn the walls as tributes to the owner’s profession. The updated kitchen and breakfast room create the energetic hub of the household, while the basement den provides a bright, fun haven for teenage children.
In the comfortable, sunlit family room, a second stairway leads to a private mother-in-law suite.
The inviting pool surrounded by beautiful landscaping beckons friends and family to the backyard, an outdoor living area created for entertaining.

A little slice of Las Vegas goes a long way when used properly.
The Lakewood Early Childhood PTA threw its Viva Las Lakewood party Friday night as the opening event of the 34th annual Lakewood Home Festival.
The party and associated silent auction — all benefiting Lakewood Elementary, J.L. Long Middle, and Woodrow Wilson High schools — took place at Lakewood Country Club, sans, or course, Liberace but full of Vegas spirit.
Don’t believe what you read? Fine, check one photo in particular.
