It’s that time of year where the skies light up with fireworks all around Grand Lake as we celebrate the Independence Day holiday.
And while people (you!) spend a ton of money locally and buy fireworks for your own personal shows all over the lake, there are the great ‘on the water’ fireworks shows that you don’t want to miss.
With the 4th of July being a Monday this year, the on the water shows will take place on Saturday and Sunday nights, so you can make the most of your Grand Lake holiday weekend.
Here is your 2016 Grand Lake Fireworks schedule:
Grand Lake Fireworks – Saturday, July 2nd in Disney
The Grand Lake Fireworks show has been lighting up the skies over Disney and South Grand Lake for 8 years now. This year’s 5th Annual Cliff Elliott Memorial Fireworks Show will get lit about 9:30 pm on Saturday night, July 2nd between the spillways in Disney, giving people for miles around a great view of this awesome show.

Duck Creek Fireworks – Sunday, July 3rd.
The Grand Daddy of all Grand Lake Fireworks shows is undoubtedly the Duck Creek Fireworks. This year’s Duck Creek Fireworks show will take place on Sunday, July 3rd. As usual, you can expect a full evening of awesome fly-overs by the warbirds and others (there are always others, no?) and then the show itself will start at dusk. Visit their website at http://www.duckcreekfireworksok.com/ for details and updates.
Those are the biggies…the ‘on the water’ shows.

It’s what we do at Grand Lake!
