The Zionsville Alpha Leo Club will host the fifth annual LeoPalooza at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 in the gazebo at Lions Park. LeoPalooza provides young adults a drug- and alcohol-free environment for the night.

The Leo Club is the youth division of the Lions Club for ages 12 to 18.  Tim Reinhart, Fall Festival chair, said the club teaches young members about the benefits of community service through service projects and visits to organizations.

“They try to do some unique things to expose the kids to what happens in our community,” Reinhart said. “What other service people do or what police and fire do to serve their community and learn about service, really.”

He said LeoPalooza is a great recruiting draw for the club as well.

“We try to utilize that as a tool for them, since school just started, to bring in new members or expose their friends to the Leo club and introduce them to other Leo members,” he said.

DJ Blazin Traxx will provide music, accompanied by a lights show until 10 p.m. Reinhart said the event allows parents to enjoy the festival, too, including the Lions Lounge, starting at 5:30 p.m., featuring a live band.

“We had all these kids in the park, and what could their parents do? So it kind of worked out that way,” Reinhart said.

LeoPalooza is sponsored by the Town of Zionsville and the Zionsville Police Dept.
