PeterM_NLCC SummerFest Final 4_Green on White

New Life Community Church is excited to bring the inaugural SummerFest celebration to the Marion area. SummerFest is a family-friendly, free event featuring inflatables, carnival games, bingo, live music, and food trucks.

    • Date: Sunday, August 15, 2021
    • Time: Noon - 8 pm
    • Location: 275 West 29th Ave. Marion
    • Cost: Free to attend, additional cost for some food options

Beginning at 1 pm, food trucks from Willy's BBQ Shack, One More Bite, and Moy's Food From the Street will open their mobile kitchens. Top off your lunch or dinner with free soft serve ice cream provided by New Life Community Church, and hard-scooped goodness from Scoopski's Uptown Creamery.

Throughout the afternoon, Spacewalk inflatables and rides from H and H Fun Rides will be operating, including a rock-climbing wall for all ages (225 pound maximum weight). Looking for a break from the heat? Step inside and enjoy a game of bingo. Throughout the day, a variety of old-fashioned carnival games will be ready for your enjoyment, and a face-painting booth will transform your cheeks into works of art.

From 5-8 pm the neighborhood will begin to rock as local fan-favorite cover-band Airwaves takes the stage.

New Life Community Church is providing the event free of charge to the community, but attendees will have the opportunity to learn about and financially support three local non-profit organizations. Marion Cares provides advocacy, connections, and services for children and families. Families Helping Families helps provide loving foster-care homes for families in need. And Safe Families for Children partners with other area agencies to provide support for families experiencing crisis. All monetary donations collected throughout the day will be given to these great organizations.
