Star Spangled Fourth - Lights on the Lake 2009

Fourth Of July Fireworks Celebration Light's Up Lake Tahoe
Pyrotechnic Extravaganza Highlight of National Holiday Weekend.

The American Pyrotechnics Association rates South Shore’s spectacular Fourth of July fireworks celebration one of the Top 5 displays in the nation.

Created by Pyro Spectaculars, Inc. and fired by Pyrodigital Consultants and features a wide variety of patterns, lights, designs and shapes. Scheduled to begin at approximately 9:45 PM.

The fireworks are visible from all over town. Below are some of the sweet spots to get a front row seat.

* The Tahoe Queen and M.S. Dixie II: South Shore’s two Mississippi paddlewheelers offer a unique opportunity to view the light show from the water. Board the Tahoe Queen for a Dinner Dance Cruise or the M.S. Dixie II for a Fireworks Cruise. Both feature live entertainment and fantastic views of the evening’s display. Log onto www.laketahoecruises.com.

* Nevada Beach: Located about two miles east of the Nevada casinos on Elk Point Road, Nevada Beach is the ideal setting for a family barbecue at the beach. A wide, sandy shoreline leads down to the sapphire waters of Lake Tahoe. Charcoal barbecues and picnic tables dot the beach. The view across the lake to the West Shore and Desolation Wilderness is unsurpassed. And the view of the fireworks display is one of the best in town.

* Regan and El Dorado Beaches: Located right where Highway 50 meets the Lake, these connecting stretches of narrow beach are front and center for the fireworks. Arrive early! These beaches fill up with people who love to be right under the action.
