Lakefront Park along the shore of beautiful Seneca Lake in Geneva, New York, will be the setting the second annual Finger Lakes Music & Wine Festival on August 17 & 18, 2012.
Event promoters are also looking to put this wine tasting event into the Guinness Book of Records for the largest wine tasting event. The event will include a diverse selection of music that will include Classic Rock, Country, Jazz and Blues. Wineries from across the state will have their very best to showcase and sample.
According to Seneca Daily.com “At 7:00PM a “Call to Action” will summon wine tasters to converge in the wine tasting area to be officially counted between 7:00-8:00PM to break the record with 5,096 participants. Mr. Philip Robertson, adjudicator of Guinness World Records NA, will preside over the attempt and will be available to the media for interviews as of 2:00PM at the festival site.”
So if you are interested in being counted as a participant, you will need to insure you have your ticket in hand and be tasting wines at 7PM on the 18th of August 2012.

National Fishing and Boating week occurs on the first full week of June every year. This year the dates are June 2-10,2012. What a great reason to experience the love of fishing and boating. Go ahead , gather some friends or family and get out on the water, the experience is worth it.
Girls, boys, men or women, fishing and boating are open to everyone to enjoy. The Finger Lakes offer miles and miles of boating opportunities from shallow, weedy lakes like Honeoye Lake to cavernous cold lakes Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lakes.
- Find Your Boat – Take a look at Boat Explorer and watch a DVD that will help determine the best boat for you and your family.
- Make Memories – Bring the young ones a long, you will have as much fun as them. Record the day and share the video with other family members over a bowl of popcorn.
- Buy A Fishing License – When you purchase a license, the money goes to conservation programs, fish hatcheries, studies on invasive species and clean water programs. All of these programs work to insure you have a great fishing experience now and for your children.
- Discover A New Hot Spot – Find a new place to pull in the catch of the day by using the Hotspot Map.
- Learn From Others - visit Take Me Fishing.Org for all kinds of resources, maps and information.
Of course the best place to take off from in your boat, is of course your very own lakefront property. Call me when you are ready to purchase your own lakefront home. What is better than a boat and a dock ? A house with a boat and a dock ! – Oh yes, my favorite….Keuka Lake …perch from the cold waters of Winter.

As far back as I can remember, I can not remember a Memorial Day Weekend that was just so weather perfect. The skies were blue, the lakes had warmed up, the temperature was warm and summer like and in some places if you were lucky, there was a nice mild breeze.
I was fortunate enough to get around to three of the Finger Lakes on this Memorial Day weekend; Keuka Lake, Canandaigua Lake and Seneca Lake. I spent Sunday working and spending time with friends on Seneca. We toured around the lake to visit friends and clients. On the boat it was neither too warm or too cold – it really was just perfect.
So now I would like to ask you why you are not yet on the lake ? Call me , we can work on that little issue. You still have plenty of time to enjoy the summer on one of the Finger Lakes. Don’t you hear the lakes calling you ?
Remember if you are looking for a great place to purchase on Canandaigua Lake to make your own, call myself or Ray Leone. If Keuka Lake is more your flavor, contact Seth Olney or myself. On Seneca Lake, reach out to Dave Reeve, Seth Olney or myself. Just be sure to call one of us.
As always, if you have some great pictures of the lakes, I would love to showcase them on my blog and of course I will give you credit for your work.
The peacefulness of the lake gave me time to reflect on all of those service men and women that have lost their lives defending our freedom.
