It’s Bigger & Better…Again !!
This 4th of July, on Saturday, will be the Annual Independence Day Boat
Parade. Gathering at the Dorn Boating Facility at 10am, boats will pass the
judges stand starting at 10:30. We then make way to circle the ‘Ice Cream Boat’
where ice cream sandwiches and goodie bags will be tossed to all
participants. And finally make our way over to the Beach Party at the
Savannah Lakes Marina Beach for the winners presentation of ‘Best-Decorated’
boats. A trophy and various cash card prizes will be awarded. (Last year
$1100 was awarded) So grab some decorations off your porch and your
neighbors porch (don’t forget to invite your neighbor) and register your boat.
At the SL Marina Beach, the McCormick Community Beach Party goes from
noon to 4pm; we will have free hot dogs (limit 2), chips, and soda. Adult
activities, children’s games and contests. Be on time to watch all the boats
coming into the beach area. Bring family & friends and stay for the
Beach Party. Bring your own chairs or blanket, and other food/beverage. Pastor
Jim will be in charge of the kids games, plenty of prizes and fun with a slip &
slide on the beach into the lake.
A Kayak Rodeo for the adults will be part of the fun, provided by the SLV
Outdoor Adventure Club. Hats & bandanas for all the adult participants.

  2. Ginny in Georgia:

    Are there going to be fireworks after the rest of the events?

    • Theresa Bryan:

      Ginny, I am so sorry I did not see your comment or I would have answered you. There were fireworks on the lake this year but not as grand as in the past. Fishing Village had them as well as Soap Creek.
