Make big splash at Lakeside in ‘Jingle Jump’

People run into Lake Erie for annual Jingle Jump at the Lakeside Pavilion

The waters of Lake Erie are a bit nippy right now, but a batch of brave folks will jump in on Saturday, Dec. 7 at noon for the 2nd annual Jingle Jump at the Lakeside Pavilion, helping to kick the “A Lakeside Christmas” celebration at Lakeside Chautauqua.

If you consider yourself a warm-blooded, brave-of-heart and in generally good health, you’re invited to take a chilly “jump” into Lake Erie for Lakeside’s Jingle Jump. This special event will take place at 12 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7 at the Lakeside Pavilion, near the beach.

Those who would rather stay warm and dry are invited to stop by the event for candid photos, enthusiastic encouragement of the brave lake-jumping souls and help kick off an exciting start to the festivities of “A Lakeside Christmas.”

There’s no fee to participate, but all participants (individuals and teams) are invited to make a donation to the Lakeside Annual Fund in support of the lakefront.

Both participants and supporters are encouraged to have fun and come festively dressed for the jump.

Awards will be given to:

Best Dressed Jumper

Jumper with the Most Team Spirit

Most Festive Jumper

Most Money Raised by an Individual or Team

Check-in and onsite registration begin at 11:30 a.m. near the Pavilion. There will be hot beverages available to keep participants and spectators warm while they wait for the jump to begin. Rooms on the first floor of the Fountain Inn will be available for participants to change into dry clothes following the event, but need their own transportation.
While this is a fun and exciting event, Lakeside takes the safety of participants and spectators seriously. Lifeguards and EMT personnel will be present to ensure everyone remains healthy and safe. All participants are required to sign a waiver before jumping. To complete the registration form and waiver, visit lakesideohio.com/jinglejump.
