PRLog - June 20, 2014 - BUFORD, Ga. -- To mark an occasion as auspicious and patriotic as the Fourth of July, the imaginative event planners at Georgia’s Lake Lanier Islands Resort did not feel that one day would be sufficient. That’s why they’re stretching the celebration out over the course of four fun-, food-, fireworks-, and music fest-filled days on the white sandy shores of Lake Sidney Lanier. The popular Southern resort’s beach and boardwalk entertainment district known as LanierWorld will play host to the majority of the festivities, kicking off one day early on Thursday, July 3.
Fireworks over the lake is the ideal end to the 4th of July at Lanier Islands
