Freedom Fireworks adds an incredible big bang to the big weekend.  The fireworks will be launched in the evening from a barge located mid-lake, in an area between Eagle Point and Kentucky Point.  If you’re on the lake, be sure to remain a safe distance from the launching barge. Thanks to Ralph Mahalak Jr., family and friends who make this awesome display happen.


Raft-O-Rama is celebrating its 62nd year on Sunday.  The parade starts at 10:30 am and follows the shoreline counterclockwise around the lake.  Then the party begins at Eagle Point, including voting for the People’s Choice Award.  Click here to see last year’s winners.
