Parks and Recreation Department
Staff Recommended Motion
Staff recommends approval for the Lady Lake Parks and Recreation Department and the Lady Lake Area Chamber of Commerce to begin raising funds to host a 4th of July fireworks display in 2023.
The Parks and Recreation Department is requesting that we be allowed to work with the Lady Lake Area Chamber of Commerce to raise funds for a fireworks display to be held on July 4th, 2023.
In a discussion before the pandemic, the Commission did not want to invest in the event, but we are asking for the opportunity to try to raise the funds for a 2023 show. We would have to try and raise $40,000.00 for a good show.
The popularity and anticipation of such an event will most likely draw a huge crowd that will dwarf the Town’s current largest event, the Christmas Parade.
I am asking for consideration for this opportunity as at a population of over 16,000 residents, many municipalities this size celebrate the 4th every year with fireworks.
