Guava St.

Between 5 and 9 p.m., participants can enjoy  food trucks, bounce houses, and live music with Voodoo Vibe at the Guava Street Athletic Complex, culminating with the fireworks display. The community is invited to bring blankets and chairs to enjoy an evening of fun and entertainment. Glass containers and alcoholic beverages are prohibited.

Additional viewing locations with free public parking include the Rolling Acres Sports Complex, Lady Lake Public Library, Log Cabin at Veterans Park, Snooky Park, and the First Baptist Church of Lady Lake. Public parking is not available at Town Hall or in or around the launch site. Attendees are asked to be mindful of private property and not to block driveways or park in the right-of-way.
