Freedom Fireworks will again thunder over Clark Lake.  The dramatic displays of colorful and intricate designs accompanied by earth-shaking roars and rumble is set for Saturday, August 5th.  Ralph Mahalak Jr. and friends have made Freedom Fireworks an annual celebration – 2023 will be year five.

In the past, Clark Lakers have helped support Freedom Fireworks.  To donate to the cause, write a check directly to the fireworks provider—Starfire Corporation, and mail to Ralph Mahalak, Jr., 6378 N Shore Drive, Clark Lake, MI 49234.  You can reach Ralph on his cell phone at (734) 735-1233.

It will be a weekend with no end to the action.  Saturday morning starts with Run Clark Lake…

…then Freedom Fireworks in the evening.  Below are Diane Deming’s photos taken from the south shore, east end.  Notice the detail.  It’s amazing to think these formations were the outcome of an explosion.


…and Raft-O-Rama on Sunday.


Also on Sunday is the MIS Cup Series race, preceded by the Xfinity Series race on Saturday.
