If you’re visiting Smith Mountain Lake during the weekend of July 18th-July 20th, then you might notice some strange characters wandering about the area in search of buried treasure. Fear not, for you’ve just discovered a fun event that’s quickly becoming one of SML’s most anticipated events…Smith Mountain Lake Pirate Days.

Beginning July 18th, participating businesses will outfit their staff in their best pirate garb and embark on a fun-filled adventure of treasure hunts and special pirate events including the Blimey Battle of Bridgewater which takes place on Saturday, July 19th at 2pm.

So how do you know which businesses are participating? Simply look for the Jolly Roger flag (skull and crossbones) flying high above the doorway and enter for some pirate-themed entertainment!

Independence Day at Smith Mountain Lake has become a “rite of passage” for many Smith Mountain Lake vacationers. If you ask long-time SML vacationers when they first discovered the area, chances are many of them would announce that July 4th was the start of their Smith Mountain Lake obsession. As the holiday creeps closer, traffic begins to pick up as vacationers make their way to their “home away from home.”

There are various Independence Day celebrations in and around Smith Mountain Lake. On Thursday, July 3rd, Franklin County High School (located in Rocky Mount, only 15 minutes from Smith Mountain Lake) hosts their annual 4th of July Rotary Independence Festival. The event begins at 5pm and concludes with a breathtaking fireworks display. Live music, kid’s activities and food vendors will be on site. Admission is free.

On Friday, July 4th, spectators pack in Parkway Marina for the annual SML Fireworks and Fire Company Fundraiser presented by the Saunders Volunteer Fire Company. Head out to Huddleston early, however, as this event fills up fast! More information can be found at www.SMLFireworks.org.

And if you’re still looking to fill the fireworks void post July 4th, then you’ll want to check out the Moneta Fire-Worx Fest on Saturday, July 5th in Downtown Moneta. Admission is $5 per person and includes a concert by The Worx from 6p-10p.

If this is your first July 4th at Smith Mountain Lake, then you’ll definitely want to make plans to visit these events. Each one is located in a different area of Smith Mountain Lake, so you’ll get a good driving tour of the area. And there are so many fun attractions along the way that you’ll become acclimated to the area in no time.
