LAKE IN THE HILLS – There are about two weeks until the 2014 Summer Sunset Festival, and the event is in need of more volunteers.
A call from the Algonquin/Lake in the Hills Chamber of Commerce has indicated volunteers are still needed for a multitude of capacities for the weekend-long event, including positions in carnival wristband sales, over-21 beer bracelet sales, wine tasting events, the kids’ tent and cleanup.
Specifically with regard to the Kids’ Korner, volunteers are needed from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 30 and from 1 to 5 p.m. Aug. 31. At least two people are needed to cover each block of time.
The chamber also has indicated any business, individual or nonprofit organization is welcome to volunteer.
Volunteers representing a business or organization are encouraged to bring promotional materials and wear their respective logos to the festival.
The festivities commence with food vendors and a beer garden at 3 p.m. Aug. 29, and wrap up after a 9:30 p.m. fireworks show Aug. 31. In between, eventgoers can look forward to carnival rides, wine tasting, a Sunset 5K, music, a kid station and more.
The festival will be at Sunset Park, 5200 Miller Road in Lake in the Hills.
