PTC July 4 fireworks to proceed, even if lake remains dry

Lake Peachtree may be down for some time, but the city’s July 4 fireworks display will go on over the lake, water or none, city officials have said.

The lake’s level was lowered in February to allow residents to repair docks and maintain the shoreline, but structural problems were found with the lake’s spillway, putting a halt to plans to refill the lake in April. City and county officials are working together on a plan to temporarily repair the spillway, but the state may force the lake to remain unfilled until permanent repairs are made.

In the meantime, it’s a good time to be getting in the mood for the annual July 4 celebration as the city’s parade registration process opens June 2 for Peachtree City residents and businesses only; the entries are open to Fayette County residents and businesses starting June 9.

To register, visit the recreation department at the Kedron Fieldhouse and Aquatic Center at 202 Fieldhouse Drive.
