Celebrate a special holiday lake tradition at our 13th Annual Holiday Flotilla Parade on Lake Lochmere on Sunday, December 16. 

Lochmere residents are invited to join their neighbors at the Lake Lochmere boat ramp at 5:30 PM to sing holiday music led by Lochmere resident Susan Collins. Thank you to Susan for once again leading us in joyous song.  We request that you bring a battery-operated candle or flashlight and form a circle. At 6:00 PM, the Brass Quintet from St. Francis Methodist Church will play holiday tunes while the boats cruise around the shore line of Lake Lochmere.

Boats and crews will begin gathering at Ritter’s dock at 105 Windy Point Lane at 5:15 PM to form the Flotilla Parade. Launch time is 6:00 PM sharp.  If you are launching from the Lochmere Boat Ramp, please give yourself enough time to get to the Ritter's for the 6:00 PM launch.

Decorate your sailboat, canoe, party barge, or kayak and join the floating flotilla circling Lake Lochmere. Invite your family and friends to watch the festively decorated boats circle the lake from your home, dock or the Lochmere dam.

Curbside loose leaf collection is 1/3 complete in Lochmere. The Town of Cary will make the second of three scheduled stops in Lochmere between December 7 and December 13. There will be a third collection from January 22 to January 27.

As you prepare your leaves for pick-up, the Town of Cary has provided the following tips to ensure your leaves are collected and to help keep our streets and crews safe during the program:

  • Keep leaves along the curb and out of the roadway.
  • Avoid placing leaves on sidewalks, meter boxes, sewer clean outs and storm drains.
  • Place leaves away from fire hydrants and mail boxes.
  • Park vehicles a safe distance from your leaves so they are accessible for pick up.
  • Place loose leaves curbside by 7 a.m. on the first scheduled day of collection for your area.  The Town of Cary trucks will come by your street once during each collection period, and it could be at the start or end of that time frame.

You may see the Town of Cary trucks on your street early as they prepare for their routes.  Don't worry, they will return as scheduled to collect your leaves.

Citizens can request an additional loose leaf collection at their address from November to January for $100; call (919) 469-4090 to schedule. At any time during the year, leaves in reusable containers or paper bags can be placed curbside for regular yard waste collection or taken to the Citizen’s Convenience Center, 313 N. Dixon Avenue, at no charge. For more, including the collection map and schedule, search HERE or call (919) 469-4090.
