Fireworks will shake the lake and light up the skies on the evening of Saturday, August 7th.  For the third year, the Mahalak family and friends are putting together another display worthy of the name Freedom Fireworks.  What was 2019 and 2020 like?  Once the last blast of thunder shook the lake, and amazing colors of every shade brightened the night sky, only superlatives echoed the shoreline for the next week. 

Will this year’s performance be as mighty?  It’s up to you.  Like stomping the accelerator so the turbo cuts in, your contribution will enhance the enormity of the event.

The Clark Lake Spirit Foundation is accepting your tax-advantaged donations. The proceeds will be transferred directly to the company providing the fireworks, Starfire. You can make your donation via credit card through this website by clicking here. Then, pull down Freedom Fireworks from the menu (see example below). You can also write a check to Clark Lake Spirit Foundation with “Freedom Fireworks” on the memo line. Mail to PO Box 224, Clark Lake, MI 49234.

Once the $10,000 level has been achieved, additional amounts received will become part of the Foundation’s general funds to be used for the benefit of Clark Lake. This website will give notice when that level is reached.

Stars & Stripes level – $2,500 to $5,000
Spark Clark Lake level – $500 to $2,499
Red, White & Blue level – $100 to $499
Big Boom level – less than $100

The weekend of August 7th and 8th will be one big party.  Participants will compete in Run Clark Lake on Saturday morning. Freedom Fireworks blows the lid off in the evening. And on Sunday, August 8th, Raft-O-Rama, celebrates its 60 years with the theme, “the 1960s.”
