Lakeside Chautauqua’s Fourth of July celebration begins at 10 a.m. with the Children’s Bike Parade departing from Perry Park. Participants of all ages should arrive early with an already-decorated bike.
Following the bike parade will be the Fourth of July Float Parade at 10:15 a.m. Both parades will travel west on Second Street and will occur come rain or shine. Spectators are invited to dress patriotically.
In advance of the Children’s Bike Parade, we encourage families to designate a place for children to find their families after they’ve finished passing through the parade.
Purchasing a Daily, Saturday or Season Chautauqua Pass includes admission into Lakeside Chautauqua and all shows in Hoover Auditorium, plus additional benefits. A separate "ticket" is not necessary to attend a Hoover show. As always, children age 12 and under and guests over age 90 are always free. Parking is an additional charge.
