This is a weekend of events that makes Garner Lake SPECIAL!
For many years, the fireworks show has been one of the largest dispalys in Shelby County and it all happens in our backyards!
The fireworks show is supported entirely by donations and volunteers from people living on and around the lake.
Annually, around the 4th of July

Decorate your boat and meet in the middle by 8 pm to follow parade marshall Bert Faller.
Annually, the day of the fireworks
Light up the lake side of your property with a patriotic theme and leave the lights on in the evening! (Think patriotic Christmas in July.)
Unique first, second, and third place trophies are awarded.
This is a great reason to tour the lake in the evenings!
