Lake Forest will celebrate its 20th anniversary in style on Sunday, with a concert that pays homage to 1990s-era Lollapalooza festivals and features famous 1970s rock band Jefferson Starship.
Dubbed Lake Forest Palooza, the free concert kicks off at 4 p.m. in and features music from three bands, each performing hits from a past decade: the '90s, '80s and '70s.
Headliner Jefferson Starship, the 1970s mutation of Jefferson Airplane (a seminal 1960s group known for such hits as White Rabbit and Somebody to Love) takes the stage at 6:30 p.m. Jefferson Starship's hits include Jane, Miracles and Count on Me.
When planning the show, organizers wanted music that would send concert-goers' thoughts back to 1991, the year of the city's incorporation, and before, said Ron Rivera, the city's recreation coordinator.
In addition to music, the event will also feature various children's activities, including a bounce house, giant slide, Jacob's ladder, balloon artist and face painter. Unlimited wristbands for the activities are $1.
For dinner, food trucks will serve to-go items. Families are also welcome to picnic on the Pittsford Park lawn.
The concert, at 21701 Pittsford Drive, is one of a number of events taking place during 2012 to celebrate Lake Forest's . Events are planned by a volunteer committee of residents in conjunction with the city's Community Services Department.
