Syracuse’s Chautauqua organization has both fun with dogs and fun with patriotism planned with two free programs in June.  
Their first annual dress-up dog parade will be held at the Oakwood Resort on Saturday, June 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Participants may decorate carts, wagons, strollers, leashes, as well as dress up with their dogs. Awards will be presented to the best dressed dog, best dog trick, best tail wag and other categories.
Special O.P.S. K-9 Academy will provide an obedience demonstration, along with a few tricks. They will also show off some special dog grooming ideas and hand out dog froyos (frozen yogurt formulated for dogs). You can learn more about Syracuse's New Hope Pet Rescue and its efforts to rescue dogs and cats and place them with loving families. They will also be available to discuss how you can adopt a pet.
Syracuse-Wawasee Trails will provide information about our community's dog-friendly trail system. They will also have a dog kissing booth and a local dog biscuit maker on hand.
As the Fourth of July approaches, for Chautauqua’s annual patriotic speaker, history will come alive when acclaimed Ben Franklin reenactor Barry Stevens takes the stage on June 30 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Wawasee High School Auditorium. This free event offers a unique opportunity to interact with one of the most influential Founding Fathers in a Q&A format with questions posed by the audience!
Since 2006, Stevens has been transporting audiences back to the 18th century with his portrayal of Franklin, the ingenious scientist, author, diplomat and revolutionary. His authentic embodiment of the witty Philadelphia statesman has garnered widespread praise. Don't miss this chance to pose your questions to the man who helped draft the Declaration of Independence!

Chautauqua-Wawasee is a nonprofit 501c3 organization whose goal is to help make Syracuse and the region a great place to visit, live, work and raise a family by providing programs based on the four Chautauqua pillars: arts, education, faith and recreation.
