Three day charity event and sleep over at the farm for Christy’s Legacy of Hope. Bring your tents, campers, kids, food and your own booze. For this second Lisapalozza we have changed the venue to the farm I was raised on and increased the entertainment. Christy was an angel on earth and her mother Karen was my father's life long friend, Sony's daughter. My dad loved a good party so that is what we did had a big party for fundraising and fun raising. For those of you who were at Lisapalozza 1, you may recall what a blast it was. We are also going to have some farm animals, tents, campers, jugglers, acrobats, a bounce house, horse shoes, games, contests, a flea market, bonfires, food, and tons of fun for this year’s Lisapalozza. Five bucks a carload donation (or more if you want) to Christy’s Legacy of Hope will get you out houses, limited water and electricity, 3 days of music, fun, food, and communing with nature.
