Living on the lake is about more than boating and fishing. It's about spending time with loved ones, making memories and celebrating life's best moments.

This Fourth of July, celebrate those memories at some of these great events on Lake Wylie!

Red, White and Boom

Located south of Lake Wylie, rests Old Town, South Carolina where lake lovers of all ages are invited to celebrate America’s Independence Day on July 3, from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the town’s annual Red, White and Boom celebration.

Featured fun will include live music, inflatables for the kids, carnival rides and local food vendors. Patrons can also enter for a chance to be crowned champion of the celebration’s ice cream eating contest.

The 17th annual Red, White and Boom festival will conclude with sundown fireworks spectacular. 

Admission to the event is free to attend for all patriots, but vendors’ goods will be available for purchase during the event.
