Celebrate Independence Day!
Celebrate July 4th from Silver Creek to Jamestown with parties on the beach, in the park and on the street followed by fireworks displays.

Around Chautauqua Lake, the day starts at 7am at the Lakewood Family YMCA and the 2015 Firecracker Run. Street sales, live music and food vendors start at 2 pm on Chautauqua Avenue, with fireworks at 10pm. In Mayville, the annual parade begins at 10 am, ending at Lakeside Park for daylong activities, food and live music until the flares create a ring of fire around the lake and the fireworks light up the sky at 10pm from Mayville as well as Midway State Park.

Along Lake Erie, Dunkirk's Memorial Park is the central location for the city's celebration with food vendors and fireworks over the Harbor at dusk. Both Silver Creek and Sunset Bay in Irving also host all day celebrations. And, in Findley Lake, the celebration starts with a Duck Race and Chicken BBQ at noon. Afternoon and evening events include a boat parade at 2 pm, live music starting at 7 pm, flares at 9:30 pm and fireworks at 10pm.

The weekend is full of events on the giant floating stage in Bemus Point. On Friday, July 3rd, Alter Ego takes the stage at 8:00 pm. Hotel California, an Eagles tribute band, plays Saturday at 8:00 pm followed by fireworks over the lake, and on Sunday, Scarecrow, a John Cougar Mellancamp Tribute, plays at 2:30 pm. All performances can be seen and heard from the water and lakeshore. Reserved tickets are available immediately in front of the stage.

Vacation Fun and Learning
For 140 years, summer in Chautauqua County has been associated with lifelong and vacation learning during the Chautauqua Institution's nine week program season. In addition to morning lectures and hundreds of Special Studies classes offered by Chautauqua Institution, several venues around Chautauqua County offer vacation learning experiences all year long. Nurture your outdoor spirit with a butterfly workshop, stargazing at the Martz Observatory, vineyard and wildflower walks, or paddling adventures. Learn to play golf or improve your techniques.
