4th of July Lake Cities Celebration

4th of July Lake Cities Celebration

The Lake Cities 4th of July Celebration is a spectacular, one-of-a-kind event uniting the communities of Lake Dallas, Corinth, Hickory Creek and Shady Shores. The festivities begin with a patriotic parade from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. sponsored by DATCU. Registration for the parade is $10. Those interested must register by Friday, June 23 at 5:00 p.m. Register here. This is a great way for Lake Cities clubs and businesses to show their pride for their country as well as their community.

Following the parade is a flag raising ceremony for the event with the singing of the National Anthem performed by a police /active duty military officer.

At 3pm, the Lake Dallas City Park, 101 E. Hundley Dr, will have food, contests, vendors, and great live music.

New this year is the Spirit Squad Tent, with lots of fun stuff for the kids. For example, they will have a kids frozen t-shirt contest, where kids will relay to open a frozen t-shirt, put it on and race to the finish.

There will be a watermelon eating contest followed, of course, by a seed spitting contest. At 4pm will be the all-new apple pie bake off where slices will be sold for $1 after the judging. All proceeds will benefit the Lake Dallas Animal Shelter.

A huge fireworks display sponsored by Classic of Denton will end the evening. Admission is free. Outside food and drink (including alcohol) are not allowed. Also, no fireworks. Let the professionals handle that. Pets are allowed but must be on a leash. Go here for more details or to volunteer for this fun event.

All the while the stage will have live music entertainment including:
