The night will culminate with a fireworks spectacular overlooking Lake Cameron, Montgomery County’s largest lake.
“SummerFest is an event that truly exemplifies the Pike Road spirit,” said Gordon Stone, Mayor of the Town of Pike Road. “It is an old-fashioned, fun opportunity for families to gather and celebrate the birth of this nation. We are proud to host this celebration each year and to be able to showcase our spirit of hospitality and honor those who have helped make our town, state, and nation a special place to call home.”
Patriotic spirit runs deep in Pike Road, and the Fourth of July has always been special to the local community. Since the incorporation of the Town of Pike Road in 1997, SummerFest has grown to be one of the River Region’s largest and most anticipated Fourth of July events. All are invited to join us for this annual celebration of our nation’s independence.
“This is a fun, family event that would not be the same without the thousands of participants and volunteers,” Stone said. “Thank you to all of the people of Pike Road for their enthusiasm and energy, which make this a joyful celebration year after year.”
