Known as Longview's crown jewel, Lake Sacajawea is the city's top destination for anyone looking to have fun in the great outdoors. When the flowers are in bloom, there is no place more beautiful to take a walk or a bike ride than along the park's 3.5-mile trail. But, even in the off-season, you will still become captivated by the gorgeous Japanese Gardens or the Frank Willis Arboretum. Most importantly, the Lake Sacajawea Park is a place for families. The activities that can be enjoyed here are nearly endless, ranging from canoeing and fishing to picnicking and catching a concert at the Lake.
Go Fourth Festival
Join in on the fun at Longview's Go Fourth Festival. This patriotic three-day event is the largest family festival in the county, with over 30,000 people attending each year. Centered around the beautiful Lake Sacajawea, the festivities begin on July 2nd, kicking off with a huge parade featuring the area's marching bands, local businesses, sports teams, and more. This is followed by several arts and crafts booths, daily live entertainment, fun children's activities, and over 20 food booths. This festival carries on for the three days, ultimately culminating in a huge fireworks extravaganza on the evening of the Fourth of July.
