Join us for our July 4 Celebration
We would like to invite you to our annual July 4th celebration in Weaverville, Fire on the Lake! July 4th falls on a Wednesday this year and the Town will be holding its celebration on that day. The day will begin with the Kiwanis Club sponsoring a 5K run. The run begins at 8:00am and proceeds will
go towards providing scholarship funds for North Buncombe High School students who plan to attend college or technical schools.

All other festivities will take place at Lake Louise Park. Booths selling all types of food, local crafts and games for children will open at 5:00pm on Lake Louise Drive. Opening ceremonies will be held on the stage located below the street at 7:00pm. A covered area will be available for eating and resting. Following these activities, we will introduce Devils in Dust, who is back by popular demand from 2016! Fireworks will also be at the Lake beginning at 10:00pm and will culminate the celebration.

Below you will find a map of the lake showing locations of the vending area, restrooms, stage and road closures. Remember to bring your chairs and blankets, but please leave your pets safe at home.

We look forward to seeing you at Lake Louise on July 4th!

Dottie Sherrill, Council Member
Town of Weaverville
Know before you go:
Although leashed pets are generally permitted at Lake Louise Park, NO PETS are permitted at the Park for the Town's July 4 Celebration. Please leave them safe at home.
Sec. 18-36. of the Town's Code of Ordinances prohibits the possession and/or consumption of alcohol at Lake Louise Park
While some may consider sparklers to be safer than fireworks, they can be very dangerous and are therefore not permitted at the Town's July 4 celebration.
Grilling Safety
As warm weather approaches we all enjoy moving our activities and recreation outdoors. This includes grilling for functions, parties and just getting together with family and friends! As you prepare to fire up the grill for this summer season please make sure your grill is in good working order and follow these simple safety tips to ensure your time grilling ends with a full belly and not a fire or burn emergency!

Thank You to our Main Street Nature Park Volunteers!
The Town wishes to thank Randy Burroughs, Sally Ekaireb and Pat Capone of the Weaverville Garden Club, for their recent weeding and overall hard work on the pollinator garden at Main Street Nature Park!

Our community is very fortunate to have folks like you who give of your time and energy for our beautiful park!
Bee Hotel Coming to the Main Street Nature Park
The Town is so very fortunate to have such wonderful young people who want to do positive things for their community! Cadette Girl Scouts in Troop 30026 are among these young folks. The cadettes will be constructing bee hotels for our Main Street Nature Park for their Silver Award.

Bee hotels, similar to the photo, provide bees with a nesting habitat, create awareness and the hotels help mitigate the extinction of our native bees. We will post more photos of the new bee hotels once they have been constructed and placed in the Park! Thank you Cadettes!
Weaverville Police Department Collaborates with the Pink Patch Project
The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chief's Association and over 110 public safety agencies throughout the United States. The program centers on vibrant pink versions of the agency’s uniform patches. Officers from the participating agencies wear pink patches or pink badges on their uniforms during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” in October. 

The Pink Patch Project is an innovative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against cancer and to support breast cancer research or treatment organizations in combating this devastating disease. The Weaverville Police Department’s Pink Patches are intended to stimulate conversations with our community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection.
The Weaverville Police Department will donate all money from the sales of our Pink Patches and memorabilia to The Hope Chest For Women and other women's cancer charities in Western North Carolina.

Please contact Detective Somer Oberlin at (828) 645-5700 at the Weaverville Police Department for more information about this important project.
