LAKEVIEW — It was a hot one this past Saturday, breaking the 90 degree mark, but folks still came out in droves for the annual Lakeview Car and Craft Show.

The downtown streets of Lakeview were lined with classic cars, craft booths and tourists.

There was no shortage of events or activities on-hand. There was the car show, a kiddie tractor pull, craft booths, a really fantastic reptile show, a wing eating contest, music, entertainment, a talent show competition, a Razz-m-Tazz presentation and even a grand opening ribbon cutting for a new local business.

Everywhere you turned exciting stuff was happening and people where having fun. Also, everywhere you turned you saw the many hardworking volunteers in their bright orange shirts going from event to event making sure everything was running smoothly without a hitch. Many of the volunteers were from the local Osgood State Bank, located right in downtown Lakeview.

“There were six of us involved from the bank today,” said Angie Burton who has been the Vault Teller at Osgood State Bank for the last 2 1/2 years. “We have been planning this event for months with the Downtown Business Group.”

The volunteers where involved in every aspect of the event starting as early as 6 a.m. setting everything up to working the night before marking off the streets. What troopers they were, even selling 50/50 tickets, running the Reptile Show and wing eating contest.
