Lakeside's Fourth of July celebration begins at 10 a.m. with the Children's Bike Parade departing from Perry Park.

Following the bike parade will be the Fourth of July Parade at 10:15 a.m. This year's Grand Marshall will be Keith Addy. While now a year-round Lakeside resident, Addy's first Lakeside experience was in 1985 as a youth group camp counselor. In 1987, Addy sold his business and applied to work at Lakeside per his friends' and family's suggestions. He got the job of Vice President of Arts Programming. He held this position for nearly 20 years, stepping down in 2004.

FAQ for the Pool & Wellness Center
As Lakesiders enjoy a fully functional Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus for the first time, the Lakeside staff is working hard to ensure that all individuals are informed about the new facility so that they can easily incorporate health and wellness into their daily lives.

We have been having conversations with people about their concerns and listening to their questions. As a result of these conversations, we have found several points of information that we would like to take the time to communicate. Read more...

Tuey Wilson - Comic Stunt Juggler
As an entertainer, Tuey Wilson's performances go beyond the usual displays of juggling skills and include a wide variety of manipulations; it simply can't fit into one categorization.
