Description: Summer events in Central Lake include art festivals, craft fairs, and the largest small town 4th of July Parade for miles around. After the parade enjoy a chicken barbeque, bazaars, and a strawberry shortcake extravaganza. Float your boat, take a dive, drive around our beautiful lakes and country side, visit a beautiful orchard, or just relax at one of our parks and beaches. Shop our little stores and boutiques, break fast at the bakery, dine at the historical Blue Pelican, or lift your "spirits" at Mammoth Distilling. In the evening make running and family memories by joining us for a 5K, 10K, or 1 Mile Fudgees Ice Cream Fun Run to honor the memory of world class runner Ryan Shay who grew up running the streets, hills, and byways of Central Lake. Top off these fun-filled activities by gathering with us after dusk to watch one of the most beautiful firework displays in small town. The 5K and 10K will start 7:00 p.m. at Thurston Park (intersection of E. State and Lake St.)1 block east of the center of downtown Central Lake. Both races will finish at the Central Lake High School track and football stadium located at Herrick Field just 1 mile south of town. The 5K is a run/walk. The 10K is a run only. The Fudgees 1 Mile Ice Cream Fun Run will take place on the track at 8:00 p.m.
