July 4th Activities
The original developer of Seven Lakes started the tradition of shooting fireworks on July 4th. In the beginning, the fireworks were directed over Lake Longleaf, near the clubhouse and pool. Now they are launched from Sequoia Point and the day has become probably the biggest day of the year for Seven Lakes residents and guests. Everyone is grilling out and enjoying watermelon, hot dogs, burgers, brats, etc. There’s even live music some years.
The day starts with a boat parade in the morning and the fireworks start around 9:00 PM. Boaters park under the fireworks to see an incredible site and the echoes coming off the water are quite amazing. Others park on the dam or set up on land to enjoy the show. It’s a great day of celebrating our national holiday that everyone will enjoy.
