While the world's largest music festival, Summerfest is over in Milwaukee, the Lake Du Bay Lion's Club is holding their own big entertainment event.

This is the 30th year for the celebration. The members hold this event to raise money for their children's camp in Rosholt for kids who are visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing.

Some of the other funds are used to maintain the lion's park in Knowlton.

A member said he has an idea of why people come out each year for live music, games and more.

"It's a small town and we have Mullin's cheese a couple of blocks away so people come buy cheese at Mullins' and then they come over here to meet neighbors. Meet friends and they meet new friends," said Tom Girolamo.

Friday, Girolamo said more than 1,000 people came out. Summerfest ends at midnight on Saturday.
