LAKEVIEW — The Indian Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is hoping for the biggest crowd yet at its annual Beach Spectacular & Fireworks celebration Saturday at Old Field Beach on Indian Lake.

Held annually on the first Saturday of July, this year’s event falls right on Independence Day. Lori Newman, with the chamber, said the event annually draws 40,000 to various viewing points around the lake.

Beginning at 11 a.m., pageants begin, which include a beach baby, little miss, junior miss, Miss Indian Lake and Mr. Indian Lake competitions. A cruise-in begins at 10a.m., and an open mic event begins immediately following the pageants at the beach.

The night finishes with a fireworks display viewable from all around the lake at 10 p.m.
