• Food trucks, with creative and popular menus.
• Exhilarating attractions…and lots of carnival rides (for young kids all the way up to teens and adults).
• Live music! On Friday night, see and dance to “Stone Soul” playing Motown hits. Learn some new dance moves by watching the “Kick It Up Dance Studio” in action before Stone Soul. Saturday night features Louie Cruz Beltran (playing Latin Jazz) followed by the '80s hits of Knyght Ryder.
• A complete schedule (including other performers) is at www.lakewoodcity.org/fiesta. With questions, call 562-866-9771, extension 2408.

Traditional elements of the Pan Am Fiesta will include the flag presentation ceremony of the United States and all the countries of the Americas, children’s cultural booth, Pan Am Fiesta historical display, and plenty of arts and crafts dealers offering unique gifts.
