Fun & Events
All work and no play makes the TLCA a dull association. Fortunately, we're extremely dedicated to the worthy cause of kicking back and having fun. Even better, we'd really like it if you joined us. Check out this page for upcoming events and activities in our area, sponsored by the TLCA or hosted by the town of Winchester or one of our many area businesses and organizations.

2021 WINCHESTER BOAT PARADE
July 3, 2021
Not a TLCA-sponsored event, but still one heck of a great time! Gather at the Divide between North and South Turtle Lake at 6 pm, buy a brat and a beer, and get ready to review and vote for the winner as creatively-themed watercraft parade past the viewers on-shore. Or show your own personal creativity and clever thinking and be a contestant! Boats must be registered by 5:30 pm to qualify. Organized by the Winchester Fire Department.
