The Lake Cities 4th of July celebration is a family oriented, community event hosted by the cities of Lake Dallas, Corinth, Hickory Creek and Shady Shores. Although we have added many activities over the years, we remain true to our roots. The goal is family participation in a safe environment at a reasonable cost. There is no admission and many free activities including music all day. All of this adds to a continual stream of fair goers seeing what else there is to eat or purchase.
