Come for the 5K - stay for the fireworks! Enjoy the closing night of the Lake in the Hills Summer Sunset with a flat and fast 5K along many bike/walking paths on the west side of town. You'll see a few corn husks, a disc golf course, and maybe a few fire flies throughout the course. Awards will be given out on the main stage between bands and stick around for the 9:30 fireworks that you can see from about any vantage point in the park.
