A Message from the Mayor
Summer is here, which means Hammond is ready for the 13th Annual Festival of the Lakes! Our 2015 event was a huge success, as over 50,000 people participated in the activities highlighting Hammond’s three lakes. This year promises to surpass last year, providing our great community another five days of summer fun.
Free live entertainment will be held nightly on the main stage, with great nationally-known musical acts to be announced soon, so stay tuned!
There will also be great family events throughout the week such as the Kathleen Pucalik Memorial 5K Walk, Run and Splash on the lake, the Hot Rod & Custom Car Show, Festival Golf Outing, Fishing Derby, Special Person’s Day, Senior’s Day and a Polka Party at the Hammond Marina. We’ve also brought back the popular Carnival Mega Pass, which allows unlimited carnival rides from open until close during specific days during the Festival.
You’ll be glad you came out for this fantastic event – I hope to see you there!
-Mayor Thomas M McDermott Jr.
