LAKE COUNTY – Lake County residents and visitors were out in force this hot, clear weekend, enjoying Independence Day festivities around the lake.


Clearlake Oaks kicked off the celebration on Friday evening with its fireworks display.


On Saturday, the cities of Clearlake and Lakeport celebrated July 4 with all-day festivals that culminated in nighttime fireworks displays.


The International Worm Races, an annual favorite, were back again this year. Always an opportunity for good fun, the race had the worms at their mark with coaches standing by.


Possibly the most hilarious event of the weekend was the second annual cardboard and duct tape boat race off of Library Park in Lakeport.


Since last year, competitors have been perfecting their efforts. The boats held up even better, with only one child managing to sink a boat this time around.


Find a video of the 12 and under age division race shot by correspondent Terre Logsdon at the YouTube Lake County News Channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsdOYO_TuFM .
