Gallery: Porch Sitting in the Grounds

081316_porchculture_sh_05

Porches on the grounds are one of the greatest representations of what Chautauqua stands for. Chautauqua is centered on concepts of inclusion, the celebration of community and family, and the four pillars of arts, education, recreation and religion. Porches are home to reading the paper in morning, watching children learn to ride a bike, family dinners or simply discussing the happenings of the day over a glass of wine. Porches are the threshold that connects those you came with and those who pass by on the street. Only in Chautauqua will you be walking to the morning lecture and hear the distant sound of someone practicing their accordion on a porch. Nearly every house has a porch to provide a place to soak in the essence of Chautauqua. Porch culture not only reflects the values of Chautauqua, but keeps them flourishing.

The John R. Turney Sailing Center, located at the south end of Chautauqua’s grounds, offers week-long sailing classes to children and adults ages 8 and up, as well as boat rentals and private lessons. Many of the instructors are college-aged sailors who grew up sailing on Chautauqua Lake. The sails of boats launched from the center can be seen on the water from vantage points around Chautauqua Lake.

Children’s School Independence Day Parade

Vincent and Kilpatrick joined the other children and teachers of the Children's School to sing patriotic songs on the Colonnade and show off the patriotic apparel that they had made earlier that week. The parade was held on the Friday before the Fourth of July because the holiday officially falls on a Monday, which would give newcomers to Children's School no time to prepare for the parade. The parade was almost relocated due to rain, but the skies cleared up enough for the children to march to the Colonnade along their traditional parade route. Photo by Carolyn Brown.
