4th of July Events

Lake Norman fireworks, celebrations, & Independence Day parades

Are you ready for America's favorite holiday? Here are some exciting celebrations going on around Lake Norman and the surrounding area. You can catch fireworks from every direction along with the numerous lights from the boats across the water - certainly a spectacle to see. There are a couple private clubs on the lake where the public can view their annual firework celebrations from the water which include the Peninsula Club (Cornelius - July 4), Trump National Golf Course (Mooresville - July 3), and Windemere Isle (Statesville - July 1).  Be cautious on the lake at night, check your lights to be sure they are in working condition, and drive slow as this is one of the busiest nights on the water.
