The Chautauqua Residents Association is celebrating the first day of summer by Piping Down the Sun on Wednesday, June 22, at Ryerson Park in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Along with the stellar sunset and friendly atmosphere for which the lakeside park is known, Allan Spencer from the City of Thorold Pipe Band will be performing on the bagpipes, while the sun makes its descent, marking the beginning of summer.
Residents association president Brian Crow said he “loves to see the sunsets” at the park and suggested “all you will need is a lawn chair” if you come to mark the occasion.
Parking in the Chautauqua neighbourhood is limited, especially near Ryerson Park, so he urged people to walk to the area for the occasion.
COVID pre-empted the solstice celebration the last two years but Crow is excited to have it returning.
