Annual Ring Of Fire
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 the lake.
