Rides, carnival games, live music and fried food galore awaits at the annual Celebrate Schererville Festival, which will bring that brightly lit summer festival magic to Redar Park June 13 through June 17.
The annual fest boasts "a large variety of food booths," a beer garden and live music every night.
Pandora Rocks, Mike Gallemore & Bad Hands, Mr. Funnyman, Dick Diamond & The Dusters, Jerica Paliga and Nicole Jamrose are among the acts that will perform, with most of the headliners taking the stage at 7:30 p.m.
Ride tickets will cost $25 per wristband, and are available at booths throughout the park.
Parking will be available at Redar Park on Park Street and South Park Avenue, and in the parking lot across the street from the park on Reiplinger Road. If necessary, overflow parking will be available at the Schererville Town Hall, Schererville Police Department, and Schererville Community Center.
On June 16, Schererville will host the 27th annual Celebrate Schererville Parade, which will begin at Joliet Street and Roman Road at 5 p.m. This year's parade will have a "Bad to the Bone" theme and feature Disney villains. Austin Avenue, Joliet Street and side roads will be shut down to traffic starting at 4:30 p.m. June 16, and parking restrictions will be enforced.
