Held every year on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. Hundreds of flares are planted around the lake as Indian Lake becomes one big red glow. The Ring of Fire ceremony is a traditional activity celebrating a bountiful harvest and marks the end of the summer season. Flares are lighted around the perimeter of the lake at precisely 9:00 PM. If you own waterfront property you are invited to share in this ceremony. Flares can be purchased at many business locations around the lake. Volunteers will light the State Park grounds.
