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 offered games and activities for all ages, including face painting, four-square, gaga pit, hula hooping, corn hole, disc golf, hop scotch and more! Our musical entertainment featured the Rocket Fuel Haulers, our local fun time band! There was plenty to eat and drink with 5 downtown eateries, The Hart Rotary Club selling popcorn, and of course, ice cream! In addition, we invited food trucks to join us to accommodate the large crowd that gathers for the event. Our area enjoys fireworks celebrations in the 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!
