Events in Lake Claire
In addition to the many informal gatherings in Lake Claire—block parties, family get-togethers in the park, and individual yard sales—the neighborhood association, with the help of smaller neighborhood groups, hosts a handful of neighborhood-wide events throughout the year. These may be fund-raising events or simply opportunities to meet neighbors and build community. Whatever the goal, everyone is welcome—the more the merrier!
Here are a few of our annual events in Lake Claire:
The Lake Claire Home & Garden Tour: Usually held in mid-fall, this event invites neighbors from Lake Claire and beyond to “experience life on the ‘lake.’” The tour features a diverse mix of homes and gardens that showcases the eclectic style of our neighborhood.
The Lake Claire Halloween Parade and Party: Typically held on a Saturday afternoon near Halloween, the annual parade and party is co-hosted by the Lake Claire Parents Group and gives kids (and adults!) a chance to parade, costumed or not, through the streets of Lake Claire, ending up in Lake Claire Park for treats, a craft, and a movie.
Holiday potluck: Our December LCN meeting is no meeting at all, but a chance to eat, laugh, and visit with neighbors new and old. The neighborhood association typically provides the main course, and neighbors are invited to bring a dish to share. We have music (a dj or another performer) and plenty of time to talk with friends and make new ones.
Neighborhood yard sale: On one day of the year, the neighborhood throws a massive yard sale, with every homeowner who wants to participate setting up shop in the yard—a great way to clean out basements and attics, meet and chat with neighbors and visiting shoppers, and make a little money.
