Founders Day Celebration!

November is the gateway month to the holiday season, but before we string holiday lights, carve up turkey and seek out bargains, the community will come together to celebrate our 25th anniversary.

On Friday, November 12, it’s an evening to meet-up with old friends and get acquainted with new friends. Residents are invited to stop by and dance, sing, ride, play or just enjoy the evening at the Party in the Park.
This resident only event inside Lakeside Park will feature a Silent DJ Party on the Great Lawn. We provide the illuminated wireless headsets you supply the fun. Choose between different music options as on-site DJ’s keep you dancing and grooving alongside your friends and neighbors.

Residents will also be able to enjoy authentic boardwalk midway games, carnival rides, live music, complimentary lite fare and libations (for purchase) as we ‘party in the park.’ The fun goes from 5 – 9 p.m.
Saturday, November 13 will see a day (and evening) full of activities.

Saturday begins with our Founders/Veterans parade in the community. Stepping off at 10 a.m., the march begins at Lakeside Park, moving along Front Street to Market Street, turning onto Celebration Avenue, before ending at Founders Park.

At 11 a.m., in Founders Park, join us for a community salute to our Celebration veterans and all veterans across this great land. Held in conjunction with the Veterans Club of Celebration, this event, along with the Memorial Day Flag Ceremony, are excellent ways to say ‘thank you’ to our Veterans. The ceremony traditionally features participation by community groups, such as Garden Club of Celebration, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts and songs by the Celebration Chorus. We are also excited to welcome the Celebration K-8 wind ensemble, who will entertain attendees prior to the Veterans Ceremony.

Say cheese! Following the Veterans ceremony, at noon in Founders Park, residents are invited to grab a spot, flash a smile and forever be immortalized in the community photo.
Kicking off at 4 p.m. in Town Center, stop by and enjoy some tasty morsels or maybe a libation or two, as our downtown establishments will be set up in true street party fashion. Enjoy the music of John Frinzi & Friends from 4 – 7 p.m. on the stage at Market and Front Streets.

Then at 7:30 p.m., we heat up the night with our headline performance, featuring the multi-talented national recording artist Caroline Jones.

There will be limited table seating available on a first come basis for residents (CROA ID required). However, everyone is invited to bring along their own chairs to stake out a spot to enjoy the evening.
Immediately following Caroline’s performance, turn your sights upward as we paint the night sky with a special 25th anniversary fireworks spectacular.
