2017 Independence Day Celebrations

fireworks fireworks

Our annual celebration and fireworks display will take place on

Saturday, July 1st

this year!!!


This year's Boat Parade theme is
"Pirates of the Caribbean"

The prizes this year include a boat lighting package for the 1st place boat (a $500 value, courtesy of Marine Concepts of Michigan), a $100 cash award for each of the top 3 place boats (courtesy of Aqua-Weed Control, Inc.), and 4 passes to MJR Digital Cinemas for each of the top 10 boats (courtesy of John Kulhavi). PLUS, there are lots more prizes to go around from our local restaurants and businesses!

The Boat Parade will begin promptly at 2:15 pm in the bay near the marina. Prior registration is not needed for boats, but all boat teams should register at the lead boat when they arrive to receive a boat number and gift bag.

Come join in the fun!!! Click here to see last year's boats and prize winners.

Prizes will be awarded based on a combination of the "People's Choice" voting by lakeside residents and the Judges Boat scoring. No prior registration is needed to vote, however you must watch the entire parade before voting.

VOTING - The telephone number for voting will be shown here on Saturday, and will also be shown from the Lead Boat as the parade moves along shorelines. We had over 500 votes last year! We want everyone to get an opportunity to vote, so we take one call per phone number and one vote per call.

Lighted Boat Parade

An "unofficial" Lighted Boat Parade may take place on Friday night, June 30th. Any boats that want to participate should meet in the bay near the marina and at around 9:30 PM on Friday.

All boats with lights and lighted decorations - either permanent or temporary - are invited to participate.


To cap off the day, this year's spectacular WLCL Fireworks Display will begin at dark on Saturday. Fireworks will be launched from 2 barges located near the southern end of the lake.

This double-barge professional display is financed entirely from WLCL fund raising activities, and from your voluntary memberships and donations to the WLCL.

The Rain Date for the fireworks will be Sunday, July 2nd.
