4th of July Fireworks in Lake Havasu
With so much craziness going on in the world today, it's nice to be able to rely on certain things. The lake always provides hours of fun at any time of the year. Lake Havasu City spends most of its summer hours in triple-digit temperatures. That's when the lake looks especially inviting. And the July 4th fireworks show lights up the Havasu skies every year. This year is no exception.
- What: July 4th Fireworks Show
- Where: Above Lake Havasu
- When: Saturday, July 4th, 9 pm
- Admission: FREE
This year, the 4th of July falls on a Saturday. We'll most likely see an increase in traffic on the lake in the days leading up to it. We should see an increase in police presence out on the lake as a result. So, keep safety laws in mind while operating your boat, jet ski, etc. out on the lake. Remember, no drinking while operating a vehicle out on the water. You will receive a fine (at the least) and possible jail time. It's not worth it. And always keep your eyes out for people actually IN the water while coasting around the lake. They can be hard to see, especially if you're not paying attention.
The fireworks show begins just after sunset (around 9 pm). The best places to view the July 4th fireworks show are from:
Rotary Beach fills up quickly. I recommend you get there early. Keep social distancing in mind when setting up your "spot". They allow you to bring coolers. But leave alcohol and pets at home. Head over to the island. Nautical Resort offers plenty of free parking. However, they don't allow coolers, outside alcohol, or pets at their facility. London Bridge Beach, on the other hand, DOES allow coolers. They also have free parking. But, if you don't want to leave the water, watch the show from your boat in Thompson Bay. Just drop anchor early because it tends to get packed in there, too. Make sure you anchor the bow AND the stern. The area oftentimes experiences a strong wind and current during this time.
Tune your radio to KNTR 980 on your AM dial at 9 pm to enjoy the full effect of this pyrotechnics display.
They simulcast music specifically set to correlate with the fireworks show. It's a blast in more ways than one. Finally, please consider leaving your pets at home for their comfort and yours. Loud noises, bright lights, and big crowds are enough to rattle even the calmest of pets. Let them enjoy their night in peace...in the comfort of their own home.
