This summer, you have the chance to show off your musical talents at Lake Cities 4th of July Celebration! Lake Dallas will be hosting their first ever Battle of the Bands competition, with first place winning $750, second place $500 and third place $250. I'd say that's a pretty snazzy deal.

Prior to the epic fireworks display, Jake Ward and The Coast Riders & Matt Hillyer (of Eleven Hundred Springs) will also be performing a free show with all ages welcome.
