Lovejoy's Iron Island Festival
Sponsored by the Iron Island Preservation Society of Lovejoy, this festival is about the pride that residents of the Lovejoy Neighborhood have in their community. Every year, the community hosts events ranging from arts and crafts to food tasting from neighborhood restaurants and a 5-km race. Booths are set up between Longnecker and North Ogden, as well as a beer tent with live music. Proceeds from the festival go towards preserving the historic nature of this East End neighborhood and to help improve the quality of life there. Free admission.
I grew up in the neighborhood and looked forward to the iron island fest each year. Unfortunately we live in a time where violence and conflict are relatively unavoidable, not just here, but anywhere. One incident at a festival a few years ago and there has not been one since. in times like these, neighborhood events, festivals and such are much needed, they bring neighbors closer together, re-enforce a sense of community and encourage people to get out of their houses, get to know your nieghbors and have a good time while doing so. I am a firm believer that the festival should be reinstated.
