NEW! Jingle Jump
Take a winter leap into Lake Erie for Lakeside’s first Jingle Jump on Saturday, Dec. 8. Those who consider themselves warm-blooded, brave-of-heart and in generally good health are invited to take a chilly jump into the lake.

There’s no fee to participate, but we invite all participants (individuals and teams) to make a donation to the Lakeside Annual Fund in support of the lakefront. We also encourage family and friends to make donations on your behalf as you immerse yourself into the near-freezing waters. Register today!
