Amidst the cookouts and campfires, fireworks, and flying Old Glory, 4th of July celebrations on Manchaug Pond include the annual Lighting of the Shoreline!

At 9:00 p.m. on July 3rd, let’s light the shoreline and campsites with flares, tiki torches, lanterns, and/or campfires to wrap the lake in a festive glow.  This Manchaug Pond tradition was first held on the lake in 1974 when suggested by a member at the Annual Meeting of the then Manchaug Pond Association.

In addition to the July 4th celebration, the Lighting of the Shoreline takes place again on the eve of Labor Day at 8:30 p.m. marking the end of the summer season.

If you are using traditional flares, after burning, please dispose of the remaining salt-like substance and metal wire in the trash as this could pose a contamination risk to water quality and safety.

Keep the holiday festive and safe!
