Conesus Lake Ring of Fire @ Conesus Lake
Jul 3 @ 9:30 pm – Jul 4 @ 12:00 am

Beginning shortly after the sun sets, the residents of Conesus Lake lite torches on the water’s edge creating a ring of fire encircling the lake. When it is completely dark, the town of Livonia sponsors a fireworks display at the north end of the lake.

Originally an old Seneca Indian tradition, this annual Independence Day celebration is the highlight of the summer on Conesus Lake.  When the Seneca Indians were the sole “residents” of Conesus Lake they would gather aroound fires around the lake to celebrate its beauty and abundance of the lake.  This custom has now become a 4th of July tradition for residents, vacationers and visitors.

Sponsored by The Conesus Lake Association, every 3rd of July residents light provided flares at exactly 10:00 pm along the entire shoreline of the Lake, creating a RING OF FIRE.  The night is highlighted by fireworks displays up and down Conesus lake.

When visiting Conesus Lake for the Annual Ring of Fire, public viewing is best at Vitale Park at the north end of Conesus Lake or Long Point Park off of West Lake Road on Conesus Lake.  Other outdoor viewing spots include Hook & Spoon restaurant and Beachcomber restaurant.

Genesee Valley Hunt Races @ Race Grounds
Oct 9 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

stevensprint2007We’ve got our eyes on October 9, 2021 and we’re really hoping to SEE YOU THERE! Planning has started…so pencil it into your calendar for the 2nd Saturday in October!

The Genesee Valley Hunt Races and Fall Festival is a great way for the entire family to spend the day in a beautiful outdoor setting just north of Geneseo, NY. The Hunt Races have been hosted here for over 120 years, and some of the finest steeplechase trainers on the eastern seaboard bring their horses here to race in this pastoral setting.
But the Hunt Races and Fall Festival isn’t just about horses—it’s about dogs and canine events, too. There are Terrier and wiener dog races, a jumping contest, agility courses, sled dog demos, and of course the Parade of the Genesee Valley Hunt foxhounds. Leashed dogs are more than welcome to attend the event, and some people say that dog-watching is just as much fun as watching the horses!
There’s lots for the kids to do (including stick horse races and pony rides), food and drink vendors, wine and craft beer tasting, shopping, music and more. It’s like an old-fashioned country fair with a race track instead of a midway, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
