In addition to the traditional fireworks over Lake Chicot and live music and refreshments, Lake Village has added a 5K race and pop up shop to the list of activities planned for its annual Independence Day celebration on July 4.
The Firecracker 5K race will begin at 7:30 a.m. at the Lake Village Tourist Information Center. For more information about the race contact the race director, Jessie James at [email protected]
Pop-Up Main Street will be held from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. If you have an idea for a business you can try it out this event.
A “pop-up shop” is a short-term, temporary retail event. For more information about Pop-Up Main Street, call the Lake Village Chamber of Commerce at 870-265-5887 or the Chicot County Extension Office at 870-265-8055.
Goofy Boots will perform at the Independence Day Celebration from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. and the fireworks show over Lake Chicot will begin at 9 p.m.
The public is invited to take lawn chairs or blankets or sit in the amphitheater at the Jack R. Rhodes Lakefront Park on Lakeshore Drive, across from the Chicot County Courthouse, and listen to Goofy Boots then watch the fireworks.
