Lakesite Has Independence Day Celebration July 6

  • Thursday, June 13, 2024

Officials with the city of Lakesite invite the public to join them for their Independence Day Celebration on Saturday, July 6, from 6-10 p.m. The event will be held at Dallas Bay Church at 8305 Daisy Dallas Road.

In years past, Lakesite hosted its Independence Day Celebration at Lakesite Park. Due to the close proximity to residences and extremely limited parking, the city decided to partner with Dallas Bay Church to host this year's celebration at their church campus.

“This is a partnership with Dallas Bay Church, which we are very excited about,” said Lakesite City Manager Kirsten Ert Acuff, “and we thank them for their commitment to the community by making their property available and assisting us with the cost and organization.”

Entry to the event is free. Members of Dallas Bay Church will provide a variety of activities for kids. Food trucks Scenic City Smoothie, California Burrito, Lookout 4 Sliders, Hotdog Heaven Food Cart, and Scenic City Shaved Ice will have their food and drink selections available for purchase.

The public is encouraged to bring chairs and blankets. Rashonda Bentley will sing the National Anthem immediately prior to the fireworks show beginning at 9:45 p.m. Lakesite Mayor David Howell will then light up the sky by actually “shooting” the spectacular fireworks display himself for all to enjoy.

For more information, contact Lakesite City Hall at 842-2533 or go to the city’s website at or on the city of Lakesite Facebook page @lakesitetn.
