“Turn the radio on, turn the radio up” because Lisa Loeb will be “singing her songs” at the Oakville Children’s Festival on Sunday, July 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Coronation Park. Festival guests can expect fun and catchy kids’ tunes, as well as a few classics from the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter turned children’s performer.
