Fireworks Over Pine Lake a Crowd Pleaser

(LaPorte, IN) - Fireworks over Pine Lake drew a pretty good-sized crowd on the 4th of July.

About $20,000 in fireworks were supposed to highlight the annual Red, Wine, and Brew festival that was canceled due to COVID-19.


So instead they were set off over Pine Lake which was jammed with boaters waiting to see them

light up the sky, along with people lined up along the shoreline. According to Carrie Garwood, with Bethany Church, the church and various sponsors put on the show since the fireworks couldn’t be used at its annual tasting event which has drawn several thousand people the past few years.

The fireworks were set off outside the lakefront property of Greg Ake, who allowed his property on the Island to be used as the launching pad.
