Lucy's birthday celebration if Jamestown, NY

This is the "must-go-to" festival for every Lucy fan. Every year Jamestown pulls out all the stops and celebrates Lucy's birthday better than the year before and EVERYONE is invited. And I mean everyone from around the country and around the world. This year will be no exception. I hope I can get a hotel room!

This year the festivities are scheduled from August 7 through August 9. Let me give you a run-down. Ever year there is the "Komedy Kollege" where participants can get a quick class in how to perform from wacky comedy such as Lucy did, then later that same day they perform a scene from one of the better known I Love Lucy episodes. There are outdoor evening screenings of I Love Lucy episodes, A picnic in the back yard of what was Lucy's childhood home, extended narrated tours of Jamestown outlining where Lucy spent her formative years. There's tons of impersonators, Collectors from all over showing their amazing collections, There's even auctions of some real Lucy-Desi memorabilia. In addition, you can take a cruise on Chautauqua Lake, win hundreds of dollars in valuable prizes and see many surprise guests.

Consider this the best "heads-up" a Lucy Lover could get. If you are taking a summer vacation, this could be it. Make your plans now and get a little closer to seeing the real Lucy.
