Good Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

Community Gathering Full Of Fun and Music

Downtown Hart hosts a good old fashioned Independence Day celebration with a community gathering full of fun and music around Hart Lake on July 2 each year. This year we have games and activities planned for all ages, including face painting, four-square, gaga pit, hula hooping, corn hole, disc golf, hop scotch and more! Our musical entertainment will be featuring the Rocket Fuel Haulers, our local fun time band! There is plenty to eat and drink with 5 downtown eateries, The Hart Rotary Club selling popcorn, and of course, ice cream! You can enjoy fireworks celebrations in neighboring communities of Silver Lake and Pentwater, and fireworks can be viewed on three consecutive nights to extend the celebration through July 4. Happy Birthday America!
