The Village of Pentwater is celebrating it's Sesquicentennial this year! This 150 year celebration has us putting on BIGGER & BETTER FIREWORK DISPLAYS! We need your help!
The Pentwater Chamber of Commerce is the only Chamber in the area to host two fireworks displays for you enjoyment.
July 3rd and the Saturday of Homecoming.
Whether you're a lifelong resident, annual visitor, newcomer, business owner, organization, this is why you understand the importance of supporting our local events. We have two spectacular firework displays in Pentwater. They are annually held on July 3rd and the Saturday of Homecoming in August. These shows are for your personal viewing and to help attract more people to your business/organization.
The 87th Pentwater Homecoming Celebration is being held August 10-13, 2017. This annual event is in its 87th year for a reason. People have been enjoying "coming home" to Pentwater for years. It's a family/friend tradition. We hope to continue the annual Firework display that Saturday for your enjoyment.
We have an even bigger goal this year. The Village of Pentwater is celebrating it's Sesquicentennial, 150 Years, this year. We are hoping to have BIGGER & BETTER FIREWORK DISPLAYS for July 3rd and the Saturday of Homecoming (August 12th).
