The Colony's Liberty by the Lake Festival
The Liberty by the Lake Festival is back for another round of family-style Independence Day fun. The party kicks off with a trio of races designed to jump-start the patriotism. A parade follows, complete with patriotic music and floats dedicated to America’s famous landmarks and star-spangled airspace.
At 4 p.m., the main events officially begin. Stunt riders wow the crowd on BMX bikes and skateboards throughout the day. From opening to 8 p.m., attendees can check out the business expo and learn more about local companies. Those with a competitive spirit can test their mettle by impersonating America's first bard, Elvis Presley, making salsa, wakeboarding, and speed-eating watermelon. Party rockers Blaze of Glory: The Bon Jovi Experience have plans to howl at the sun until it drags the day below the horizon, priming the sky for fireworks that cast red and blue sparks over the waters of Lake Lewisville.
