On Sunday, Sept. 3, the Lakeside community will gather to celebrate the 144th Chautauqua summer season.

To begin the celebration, local musicians and bands will play from 12-4:30 p.m. on the Pavilion decks and at the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo.

Next, a community-wide picture will be taken by a drone at 6:30 p.m. on the dock. In the event of inclement weather, the picture will be cancelled.

Immediately following the picture, a Summer Celebration will be held on the Pavilion East Deck. We will gather to celebrate this special community and how Lakeside has touched the lives of newcomers and families who have visited for generations. The event will include hymn singing and reflections of the season from Lakeside Chautauqua President/CEO Kevin Sibbring and other Lakesiders.

Although the Chautauqua summer season is coming to a close, Lakeside remains a year-round destination for families and groups.
