The Celina Lake Festival is held on the Grand Lake St. Mary’s shores in downtown Celina. For more than 50 years, this three-day event packs in family fun and even features cars that swim! The festival begins Friday night with a brilliant fireworks show, live entertainment, the Amphicar Swim-In, and a Cruise-In with over 250 cars. The weekend will include a parade, a car show, a boat Poker Run, a cardboard Duct Tape boat race, a kiddie fishing derby, and a kiddie and adult tractor pull. A volleyball tournament, a 5-k, a Women’s Walk for Wellness, and the pageant to win Miss Lake Festival are also held during this festival, all centered around the beautiful shores of Celina Lake.
