Leon Festival

LEON Festival

The LEON Festival has been postponed to Thursday, June 26, from 5 to 10 p.m. due to inclement weather.

What is LEON?

In the United States, Leon Day is the halfway mark to Christmas. Leon is Noel spelled backwards. It's celebrated on June 25th, which is the turning point when Christmas begins to come closer on the calendar. Although unofficial, the holiday has become popular enough that American Greetings offers e-cards for Leon Day! Radio station Sunny 102 will be playing Christmas music all day!

Join us for the 1st annual LEON Festival as we kick off the 25th anniversary celebration for Lights on the Lake.

Admission is free.

Stop by for a night of family fun as we celebrate the half-way point to Christmas!

Food trucks will be available.

Presented by Upstate University Hospital and Syracuse Area Honda Dealers.
