Register for the 2019 Ryan Shay Mid Summer Night Run

Summer events in Central Lake include art festivals, craft fairs, and the largest small  town 4th of July Parade for miles around. After the parade enjoy a chicken barbeque, bazaars, and a strawberry shortcake extravaganza. Float your boat, take a dive,  drive around our beautiful lakes and country side, visit a beautiful orchard, or just relax at one of our parks and beaches. Shop our little stores and boutiques, breakfast at the bakery, dine at the historical Blue Pelican, or lift your "spirits" at Mammoth Distilling.  
    In the evening make running and family memories by
joining us for a 5K, 10K, or  1 Mile Fudgees Ice Cream Fun Run to honor the memory of world class runner Ryan Shay who grew up running the streets, hills, and byways of Central Lake. Top off these fun-filled activities by gathering with us after dusk to watch one of the most beautiful firework displays in small town
