About Pan-O-Prog

Panorama of Progress, or PAN-O-PROG as the weeklong festival is commonly known, began largely due from the success of the development of Lakeville’s Airlake Industrial Park. Sensing the future growth of the city, community leaders looked for a way to observe. Since 1967 Lakeville has been celebrating its successes as PAN-O-PROG!

Our Vision and Mission Statement

Vision – To make a significant contribution to the quality of life in the City of Lakeville by providing its citizens with a continuing source of community pride, a citywide celebration by and for every citizen, and a means of promoting the benefits of a common bond between the people, businesses, government, education and civic organizations which make up our community.

Mission – Volunteer-run community festival for all citizens promoting city heritage, fostering community pride and establishing community tradition.

Over 50 celebrations, events and activities take place during the week of July 4. By the masses, residents line up to watch the parade, classic car cruise and 4th of July fireworks!

Other impressive events include tournaments, pageants, battle of the bands, cookouts, orchestra in the park, crafts, outdoor dances pet and talent shows, medallion hunt and all varieties of entertainment! There is something for all age groups and food for all tastes. Come join the celebration!
