Celebrate America's Independence Day in the Lakeland

For those that call the Lakeland home, a second home or a vacation must-visit, the 4th of July holiday week is traditionally a time of celebration, parades, special time with family, fun on the water, fireworks shows and campfires. Although current circumstances require a different approach to our "normal" actions while celebrating our nations independence, the show will go on. With many events cancelled, there is still plenty of "socially distanced" activities to enjoy.

In Longville, celebrations begin on Wednesdays with "Turtle-less Wednesday." From 1 to 3 p.m. there will be games, dancing, food and fun downtown for an afternoon of entertainment.

Saturday, July 4th festivities will begin at 10 a.m. with the VFW Post 772 and Auxiliary with the presentation of colors. The food court also opens at 10 a.m. with food provided by the Longville Chamber of Commerce, Hunter's, Longville Lions and the YAH Club in the city parking lot. Dine-in options are available at any of the local restaurants. Registration for the Costume Contest opens at 10:45 a.m. at the Chamber Visitors Center, just west of the post office. Individuals and friends/families will compete for cash prizes awarded to the best individual and group. There is a $10 registration for the contest. The beer garden opens at 11 a.m. at the Docksider. An egg toss hits the streets at 11:30 a.m. prizes will be awarded. Register for the bean bag tournament at noon, contest will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Main Street. At 12:15 p.m., costume contest winners will be announced and prizes handed out. At 1 p.m. a giant tricycle obstacle course/races will begin. Take a break and do a little shopping before the fantastic fireworks show at dusk over Girl Lake.

There will not be a parade and safety precautions will be followed.

Walker will also be hosting their "4th of July Red, White & Blue Fireworks on the Bay."

Let's all bring our positive vibes for the 4th of July!
