Get ready to have some fun this year on Smith Lake for the 4th of July. Most folks are planning a very long weekend due to the holiday falling on Tuesday. Many expect an influx of friends and family to entertain all weekend. There is plenty to do all around the large tri-county lake area.
Every Independence Day on Smith Lake is special, rain or shine. We're always praying for summer storms to hold back for the weekend's events. If it's perfect weather, you'll see fireworks big and small all around the lake the entire holiday weekend. Just enjoy viewing small celebrations from the water as you boat home carefully and slowly along the lake area after a long day of fun in the sun. If there is prolonged inclement weather in the evenings, most of the main annual events will either reschedule or cancel.
There are several big fireworks shows that have been reported so far, see the list below this blog.
Check back to this list to see if any dates are rescheduled due to weather. If a favorite event near you cancels, watch to see if they revise plans, try out another event nearby on another day, or just thoroughly enjoy your own private celebration including plenty of red-white-and-blue decor (check our Amazon store for ideas in Home Decor). Be sure to stock up on sparklers & fireworks, outdoor games, floats and towables, watersports equipment, backyard grill-out items, boating essentials, a charcuterie board for s'mores, and a homemade ice cream churn and all the toppings. Stock up on ALL the favorites of summertime. Then simply kick back and enjoy the fun, laughter, experiences, and daily wind-downs by the fire pit - MAKE MEMORIES! Also, visit the Smith Lake #spotsonsmith checklist on the map by Sue Clements to see some of our favorite spots on the lake while out boating. No matter how you celebrate, the weekend is truly a favorite for all who spend it on Smith Lake.
