Fireworks will launch at dark (roughly 9:30 PM) from two lake locations: Spence Island & Dreher Island.  Fireworks DO NOT launch from the park sites at the dam. The best viewing location is from a boat.
Did you know? The fireworks show is synchronized to music.  Tune your radio to B106.7 to hear patriotic music while enjoying the view
*If you choose to stream the music there will be a delay. The best way to watch/listen is to tune your radio to B106 the old-fashioned way.
