Special Events at Sun 'n Lake

Hosting Special Events is our Specialty! 

At Sun 'n Lake there is always something going on. In addition to our Recreation Amenities, Sun 'n Lake is host to different Special Events throughout the year. Festivals, 5K's, Tournaments and more!! Majority of our events are open to anyone - not just residents, so that others can see all Sun 'n Lake has to offer! Here is information on some of of the more popular events: 

Dash & Dye East​er Festival and 5K

Every year, the day before Easter, Sun 'n Lake hosts an Easter Festival and a 'Colorful' 5K. Festival participants will enjoy face painting, games, inflatables, entertainment and most of all an Easter Egg hung complete with 10,000 + eggs!! The Easter Bunny generally makes an appearance or two. With the 5k, participants will run a course through Sun 'n Lake, but before they start their race they will have a chance to get 'dyed' with a cornstarch colored powder. It makes for a lot of fun and not just another typical 5K.

  ​​Kids Club Summer Camp

Over the summer, kids have the opportunity to explore new things and a lot of them do it with our Kids Club Summer Camp. With a new theme each week, which could be anything from sports, to science, to cooking, kids will enjoy themed activities, swimming and lots of time to do what they do best - Just being kids! 

  Independence Day Celebration
Every year on July 3rd, Sun 'n Lake is host to the best display of Fireworks in Highlands County! This popular event is always the highest attended event  Sun 'n Lake has. Participants enjoy Entertainment, inflatables, face painting, great concessions by the Island View and more! Plenty of fun for everyone. 

Trick or Trot Fall Festival And Glow Run 
   Around Halloween, Sun 'n Lake holds a Glow 5K and Fall Festival. The 5K is held a night with lots of glowing color before and after the timed 5K. New this past year was a FOAM after party. We try to change it up a little every year to keep it interesting. Generally the Festival portion of the event takes place during the day, but we have been known to change that from time to time too. Participants will enjoy a fun Haunted House, inflatables, face painting, games, trick or treat stations, entertainment and more!

   Holiday Festival
This fun event always changes from year to year, but never lacks in fun for it's participants! Participants have enjoyed a Teddy Bear Breakfast with Santa, a Festival, Fun in Whoville with the Grinch and more.

       Even though these are the most popular of our events, there is so much more that happens throughout the year. Check out our Community Events Calendar for more information.
