LAKE FRONT CALENDAR of EVENTS...

2024 Calendar of Events

By Catharine Hadley, Arts and Entertainment Editor, catharinehadley@gmail.com

The theme of this column is "trying new things." I'm happy to be starting this new project of writing the entertainment column for Leisure Living Magazine! I've done all I could to make the entertainment listing complete and varied, so there should be something for everyone. Although I've done my best to make sure all the information is accurate, please go online or call ahead to confirm your plans.

Any suggestions and details of your upcoming events can be sent to me at catharinehadley@gmail.com.

Bring On Summer!

When friends visit, I always tell them that it's really easy to enjoy yourself in this area in the summertime. There are so many types of activities for all different ages, interests, and activity levels.

If you're looking for something easy, try Yoga on the Beach with Donna Lueke on Tuesday and Saturday mornings at East Harbor State Park. If you like music and a party atmosphere, try downtown Port Clinton or any of the surrounding venues (the Main Street Port Clinton website has a listing of the acts that perform at The District on Madison Street). If you like farmers markets, many local communities have them. I recently went to the Port Clinton Sunday Farmers Market at the new location, Hopfinger-Zimmerman Memorial Park on West Oak Harbor Southeast Road. As much as I had enjoyed the event in the past, I really liked the new location!

Lakeview Park in Port Clinton will be the site of two upcoming art shows. The Port Clinton Women's Club Arts & Crafts Show is Sunday, July 14. The Port Clinton Artists' Club holds Arts in the Park the weekend of August 3 and 4. I love events like these. It's amazing to see the creativity and workmanship in the artists' works. It's also gratifying to be able to give gifts that are truly unique. I must admit, sometimes I give those "gifts" to myself.

The theme of the upcoming Ohio Star Quilters Guild biennial Quilt and Needle Arts Show is "Quilt Regatta." The event is scheduled for July 19 and 20 at Peace Lutheran Church, Port Clinton. I've been to this show several times, and each time I am amazed at the time and talent that must be required to create these works. The event includes more than 100 pieces, plus raffles, vendors, and more.

Please submit suggestions for the August edition of Leisure Living Magazine to catharinehadley@gmail.com by July 18.

Keynote Events At Kelleys

Later in the summer, Kelleys Island's Got Talent contest is scheduled for July 13 at Memorial Park. The Kelleys Island Fest is July 19 through 21, and it will include craft vendors, food, beer tent, music, a street dance on Friday and Saturday night, a parade Saturday morning, and fireworks Saturday night. The Kelleys Island Film Fest is July 27 and 28. Visitors can watch movies on an inflatable screen that will be on the ball field, or at Memorial Hall.

Wildlife Drives

The Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge is open for Wildlife Drives every weekend through the end of August. It also has a "Puddles Shuttle" which provides 60-90 minute tours on an open air electric tram. Contact the Friends of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge for information.
