EAST FREETOWN (WBSM) — This weekend marks the return of the annual Lakeside Family Festival to the shores of Long Pond in East Freetown.

The festival is organized by the members of St. John Neumann Church, and will feature live entertainment, games, food, beverage and carnival rides.

The carnival portion is put on by Fiesta Shows, which has confirmed to WBSM that it will not have its new policy on minors in place for the event. The policy had previously been in place for the carnival at the Dartmouth Mall.

Unlimited ride passes are also available on the Fiesta Shows website for $40 per day. They will be $45 if purchased at the festival.
