About the Event

Join us for Spring Lake's 4th of July Celebration!!  

With the Covid-19 Pandemic and Social Distancing guidelines, we’ve decided to cancel all beach activities for this year.  (Volleyball and Tug of War)  The remainder of the activities will continue with everyone practicing Social Distancing guidelines.

$5.00 per hand, cash prizes – There are 5 “stops” around the lake.  Look for the docks with the large numbered signs.  They appear in order following the normal traffic flow.  Proceed around the lake picking up a card, per hand (making one trip around the lake due to time constraints and to not interfere with the boat parade).

Dusk – Fireworks from the Dam

Reminder:  Dam access will be closed to traffic beginning at 7:00 pm for set up.

If you watch the fireworks from the water, your watercraft of choice (boat, kayak, canoe, paddleboard, paddleboat, etc…) MUST have front and rear lights for everyone’s safety.

All water traffic must stay a safe distance from the dam for obvious safety reasons. Please visualize a line between Bill and Gloria Wuthrich’s and Bob Basham & Jane Kieler’s boat docks.
