Event Schedule

This page will be updated regularly as the schedule becomes more firm closer to the event date. Please check back regularly for schedule updates. This is a free event, with fun for the whole family! Tell your friends and neighbors all about it, and come help us celebrate America's freedom at Liberty By The Lake!

UPDATE: Due to the extremely wet conditions and high lake levels, which have resulted in the fireworks shoot site and shoreline trail being underwater, the Liberty By The Lake festival and Liberty 5K/10K/1M are being relocated this year. The festival will be held at The Colony Five Star Complex (4100 Blair Oaks), and the run will be held at the LISD Natatorium (5729 Memorial Drive) on Thursday, July 4th.

Different location, same great patriotic celebration!
