What are your plans for the 4th this year? Barbecue at home with friends and family? A lazy day in the pool? Spending the day out on the lake? (That's my personal favorite.) Once night falls, you might want to head out to the lake to watch the Havasu fireworks show.

Around 9 pm on Tuesday, July 4th, the City of Lake Havasu sets off an amazing fireworks show to celebrate our nation's birthday. The best places to watch from are Rotary Park, the Nautical Beachfront Resort, and London Bridge Beach. But if you plan on spending the day on the lake like me, then you'll want to navigate your way toward Thompson Bay in the early evening. No matter where you decide to anchor yourself (on land or lake), you're going to want to scout for a spot early. The lake and all areas to view from land get crowded very quickly.

In Lake Havasu, there are only two times of the year that you can set off legal fireworks: from June 24th to July 6th and between Christmas Eve and January 3rd. While other states, counties, and even local tribal land may allow fireworks, Lake Havasu City (mostly) does not. How do you know what is legal and what isn't? Well, if it leaves the ground and/or explodes, it is least without a permit. Not only can setting off illegal fireworks get you in trouble, but so can buying them, selling them, and even possessing them. And that includes if you purchased them legally from a vendor. But when 9 pm hits, make sure that you tune in to 980AM KNTR for a star-spangled accompaniment to the festivities.

Legal fireworks include sparklers, fountain fireworks, and any other firework that stays on the ground. But you must be at least 16 years old to light them. Keep this in mind before you set off those illegal pyrotechnics. Each violation may cost you $500 and 30 days in jail. So, ask yourself. Is it really worth it? I think not. Go see the legal displays instead. No muss. No fuss. No cleaning up afterward.
