End Date: 6/24/2017End Time: 11:00 PM
Event Description:

Watch fireworks by lake or by land at Mississinewa Lake’s Fireworks Over the Mighty Mississinewa on June 24.

The show starts at dusk. It debuted in 2016, and support from private donations made it possible to repeat the show in 2017.

“Last year the lake was aglow with boat lights as hundreds of lake lovers focused on the the spectacular show of fireworks,” said Jordan Epp, assistant property manager.

Guests can set up lawn chairs and blankets to view the fireworks from the beach. Country music band The Mountain Dewe Boys will perform on the beach to kick off the celebration at 6:30 p.m.

Volunteers will encourage free-will donations in lieu of the usual gate fee at the property entrance beginning at 5 p.m. Donations also will be accepted on the beach and at boat ramps.

“We’ve had an outpouring of generosity from sponsors so far, but we still need donations to strengthen the event each year,” Epp said.

Sponsors that gave $500 or more include David and Patricia Folck, Schlemmer Brothers., Quality Heating and Cooling, First Merchants Corp., Ivy Tech, Triple J Engineering, First Bank of Berne, Red Bridge Marina, ZZ Diesel, Bowman’s Heating and Cooling, and Nipsco.

Guests should arrive early because parking will be limited. Campers are encouraged to walk from their campsites to the beach due to parking limitations.

Activities such as cornhole tournaments and disc golf begin at 10 a.m. Bring lawn chairs, blankets and bug spray.

Alcohol is prohibited on the beach. Private fireworks also are prohibited on the property.
