Additional Information
Please note that the above schedule is a tentative 2017 schedule, and it is subject to change. Fireworks may be held on Saturdays only if the Friday show has been cancelled due to rain. The July 3 and Labor Day weekend shows have no rain dates.

All of the above shows are fired from the beach.  While the beach is mostly closed to the public during the shows, a small portion of the beach that is deemed at a safe enough distance IS open. Excellent views of the fireworks are also available from the boardwalk and public docks.

There are also available, on occasion, special fireworks cruises and fireworks trains from which to observe the fireworks. (The view from a cruise boat or private boat in Weirs Bay is especially lovely, with the fireworks exploding nearly directly overhead.)The Mount is docked at its berth in Weirs Beach, while in the background can be seen the colorful lights of a fleet of boats out on the Lake, in anticipation of  the July 4th, 2012 fireworks.
