The 2015 Lake Sara Fireworks display is over and as always spectacular. Each year, the Good Neighbors of Lake Sara, plan, coordinate and provide one of the best fireworks shows in central Illinois. Spectators can watch from the beach, from their homes along the lake or even from their boats. At times, there are more then 100 boats on the lake watching the fireworks. It's amazing to see the fireworks and their reflections on the water.

If you would like to help with the 2016 Lake Sara Fireworks or to make a donation, please contact the Good Neighbors of Lake Sara.

A new restaurant, Zona's on the Lake, is now open at Lake Sara! Located on the east end of the lake on Park Road, Zona's is open from 4:-10pm Tuesday through Friday and 11am-midnight Friday through Sunday.

"It's exciting to have a great restaurant at the lake" says Brad Hasting a long time Lake Sara resident. In fact many are excited that Greg and Donna Addis, owners of Pizza Man in Effingham, have opened Zona's. They have a wonderful menu and dining can be either inside or on the deck outside next to the lake on Ridge Runners Cove.

Stop in, have a delicious meal, and get used to having Zona's around for a long long time.
