The summer fireworks show kicks off every year on the Friday preceding Memorial Day weekend in May. The show runs every Friday of the summer through Labor Day weekend at the end of the summer. The fireworks show starts at 9:30 pm and runs for about 15 to 20 minutes.
We recommend the following parks for best viewing:
Rockledge Park – entrance fee required, but has the best view.
Lakeview Park – no fee.
Oak Grove Park – no fee.
The fireworks show is always fun and a great way to enjoy a Friday night on the lake. This is a really fun show and it gets pretty crowded so get there early.
The biggest crowds are usually in Oak Grove Park where the fireworks are actually launched from. The launching area is near the Sand Bass boat ramp.
You can also enjoy the show from the water if you have a boat. It is really nice to sit back on the lake, enjoy some music, and watch the fireworks show on Friday nights. Remember to be safe out there as there are quite a few boats doing this and it is pretty dark on the lake at night.
Most of all have fun! This really is a great fireworks show.
