Summer in Texas is fun! There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy festivals and recreation - or in other words - ways to occupy the kids this summer and keep them from getting bored.

Lakefest happens June 30th off the shores of Lake Tyler at McElroy Road. In addition to all the great food and music, they're bringing in a sand sculptor from South Padre to build a sand castle.

The Whitehouse Chamber of Commerce sponsors the event, and they say the purpose is to generate money for area non-profits. So all of that fun helps some good causes.

Good luck in the washer tournament! We'll see ya there.
