Celebrate Smith Mountain Lake Events July 4th in Style!
Held every July 4th since 1991, the Smith Mountain Lake Independence Day celebration is hosted at Parkway Marina, right on the lake itself and just minutes down the road from Smith Mountain Lake State Park.
Leading up to the spectacular fireworks display that begins after sundown, there is a live music performance at 5:30pm, at which time the YMCA Kid’s Zone also opens for $5.00 per child for unlimited playtime. You can also ride the beautiful historic Parkway Marina Carousel, which has been restored. In case of rain, the fireworks will be displayed on July 5th.
Tickets are priced at $10.00 per person, with children ages 12 years and under admitted for free. Proceeds from ticket sales and the YMCA Kid’s Zone are donated to the Saunders Volunteer Fire Company, which works to keep Smith Mountain Lake safe from fires. Parking for the event is also free.
Parkway Marina is located at 16918 Smith Mountain Lake Pkwy., Huddleston, VA 24104. You can also find out more information about Smith Mountain Lake Events including the Independence Day celebration at Smith Mountain Lake by calling (540) 297-6856.
