Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The pirates may have departed from the Olcott shores, but this week you’ll find puppets, rock n roll, daylilies, an ultimate reunion, a chicken barbecue and more to spice up your week!
• The Olcott Carousel Park is fun all summer long, and this weekend they welcome the “Janice Spagnola Family Magic Puppet Show,” live on stage at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Tom Kelley Rustic Theater. The park will be open from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday and from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday. See the new 1940s Erie Digger Machine in the arcade. Also new to the park and located in the Skee Ball pavilion is a Pick Up a Duck game. Rides are still 25 cents. Listen to the organ music and get more info at www.olcottbeachcarouselpark.org 778-7066.
• The Lakeview Village Shoppes are now open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 11 a.m. to dusk Thursday through Saturday. You can also hook into free WiFi on the boardwalk. It is a great place to shop, have something to eat and enjoy the Lake Ontario view.
• Saturday Night Car Cruises continue on Main Street in Olcott. Stroll down from 6 to 9 p.m. and enjoy some of Olcott’s fine eateries and businesses while you’re there. There is no cruise entry fee, and free admission for spectators.
• Do you love to see daylilies in bloom? Daredevil Daylily is located on Route 78 in Burt, less than a mile from Lake Ontario. A visit to the website shows photos of lilies in riotous colors, and you have a chance to see the blooms at a Make Your Own Daylilly Day on Saturday. Enjoy a demonstration of crossbreeding and the cultivation of this popular perennial. Each attendee will receive a free daylily plant. The event is free and the rain date is July 22.
