This year was our fourth year hosting our annual 4th of July Lawn Party and it was another success!

We have a lot of fun holding this event every year and keep trying to make it bigger and better. This year’s event activities included a Moonwalk, Watermelon Eating Contest, and Duck Pond. This year’s favorite activities were the Dunk Tank and the Watermelon Eating Contest.

Dunk Tanks are always fun but we filled ours with managers and (willing) employees. Nathan our Guest Services Manager, Stefanie our Director of Sales, and April our Assistant General Manager all had their turn in the Dunk Tank. Three balls were only $1 and all of the proceeds are going to the Harbor Humane Society. We raised almost $200! Check out our YouTube Channel to see everyone getting dunked!

The Watermelon Eating Contest was beyond hilarious! We had two age groups – 12 & under and 13 & up. We had over 20 kids battle it out for the championship. This picture is of the winners of both age groups with their finished melons. You can check out video of the contest on our YouTube Channel.

Our goal every year is to have a fun event that’s family friendly and open to the public. With our view of the Grand Haven Fireworks and our Great Lawn, we love having everyone join us to celebrate 4th of July! We already have plans in the works for next year and can’t wait to keep making this event bigger and better!
