4th of July Celebration

Lake Zurich’s Annual
Independence/Family Day
at Paulus Park, Wedesday, July 4

Join friends and neighbors at Paulus Park as we celebrate Independence Day with our annual Family Day.  Day-long activities include music, entertainment, kid's games, inflatable rides, swimming, the Taste of Summer featuring great restaurants serving everything from hot dogs and burgers to pizza, tacos and egg rolls.

The day culminates in fireworks launched over the lake to delight viewers with larger shells/displays than in years past.

Thank you to the Lake Properties Owners Association for permitting the use of the lake. This change will also allow more viewing space around the lake as the safety zone will be well within the lake.
