Grand Lake’s favorite holiday – July 4th – is now right around the corner and folks plan all year for the Independence Day holiday time at Grand Lake.
Besides spending bazillions of dollars locally to buy fireworks and blow their own stuff up…people can’t wait for the legendary on the water fireworks shows.
This year July 4th falls on a Saturday – which likely means a shorter vacation weekend for you – but for those of us at the lake, the days all kind of run together every year around the 4th.
And…in case you are wondering…YES…the JETS ARE BACK for the Duck Creek Fireworks!
And this year will be no different with at least 2 evenings of sky filled fireworks over Grand Lake.
Here is a schedule of Grand Lake fireworks for 2015:
– City of Grove Fireworks – July 3rd
The City of Grove will host their annual July 3rd Celebration & Fireworks on Friday night, July 3rd (really!) at Wolf Creek Park. The fun and entertainment start in the park at 6:00 pm with the fireworks show set to boom a little after 9 pm out on the water of Wolf Creek.
