Your Islands' Holiday Kickoff

4th of July Weekend!

Hello Islands’ nation!...This is our independence kickoff!

This is our nation's birthday - let's do this big!!  Come ride the water slides, soar through the skies on zip lines, or take a calm approach and dip your toes in the lake while sunbathing along our pristine beach. Whatever you decide, come do it at  LanierWorld!

Dine right on the beach or catch a pick-up game of volleyball at Sunset Cove! If you love live music, this weekend is the perfect time to enjoy a combination of bands and DJs rotating at any of our outdoor stages. There will be food and drink specials all weekend long, with 4 nights of fireworks & special broadcasts on the Spectacular Screen! This is the long weekend to enjoy family, friends and FIREWORKS!!

Do you want to save this holiday weekend? Purchase a season pass online or at the gate and use it each day of the holiday weekend. The remarkable value is that the season pass is paid for after only three visits to the Islands - and you get to use it for the entire season!  

While we’re having a good time, let’s not forget the significance of July 4th. A special presentation honoring the Red, White & Blue will feature on the Spectacular Screen.

As a reminder, all military and first-responders have free entry into Lanier Islands.

This is a 4th of July weekend you cannot afford to miss!
