Before the area was settled, the people of the Seneca tribe would burn tobacco around the shores of the lake to give thanks for a plentiful harvest. This tradition continues today and is known as the Ring of Fire. In the summer, shoreline residents light a fire or flare that creates a ring around the entire lake.
The Canandaigua Lady, a replica paddleboat from the 1800's, continues the tradition of the steam and paddleboat passenger service that flourished in the 19th century.
