Kaleidoscope of Color Run/Walk

10 a.m. Saturday, May 30
(9:30 a.m. registration) 
Open Field near the Williams Tennis Campus

 

Lakesiders of all ages are invited to participate in the inaugural Kaleidoscope of Color Run/Walk.

 

Kaleidoscopes are known for their reflective presence of multiple patterns and bright colors that captivate the eye. During the three-mile run/walk, various colors of powder will be tossed at different course locations, changing white clothes into a kaleidoscope of color.

 

Lakesiders are encouraged to wear disposable, white clothing and prepare for a vibrant morning run/walk.

Because participants' hair, skin and clothes will capture the excitement of this event, all are encouraged to: wear a bandana or headband to protect hair; wear sunglasses to protect eyes; apply oil (coconut oil, olive oil or leave-in conditioner) to skin and hair to help with powder removal; and participants with longer hair should place it in a bun or ponytail prior to the start of the event.

The Chautauqua Lecture Series will present a special seminar titled, "Life aboard a Coast Guard Icebreaker," during the 2015 Bonus Weekend.

He recently spent time aboard the Coast Guard icebreaker, Neah Bay, where he experienced life aboard this 140' bay-class icebreaking tug.

 

His duties included interviewing crew members about life on the ship and relieving the crew of helm duty.

 

In this lecture, Morris will share what he learned from crew members about the rewards and hardships of working on a ship, such as the Neah Bay, the work performed by crew members and how the crew remained connected with their families while at sea.

Discover the Rhein Center 

2-4 p.m. Saturday, May 30
Rhein Center & Outdoor Tents

 

The Rhein Center staff will host an open house over the 2015 Bonus Weekend to introduce new and exciting projects taking place this summer.

 

The Discover the Rhein Center family event will include tours of the facility, demonstrations by artists and free art activities for the entire family.

 

Staff will also be on hand to assist families in creating accounts for the online class registration program. Only one account is needed per household.

 

This online system is a convenient and efficient way to browse, register and pay for art classes at the Rhein Center. However, students wishing to register and pay in-person will still have the opportunity to do so on Sunday afternoons.

Ambrosia

7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 30

Hoover Auditorium

 

As part of Lakeside's additional programming during the 2015 Bonus Weekend, the band Ambrosia will perform in Hoover Auditorium.

 

Founded in 1970, the group explores classical and world influences, but remains rooted in blues and R&B, to create a sound defined as "Ambrosia." Their hit songs include "How Much I Feel," "Biggest Part Of Me" and "You're The Only Woman."

 

The band was originally labeled as America's answer to the progressive invasion of English bands, such as Yes and King Crimson. Ambrosia quickly proved it was all that and more with albums covering a variety of musical styles.
