Locals and visitors alike will once again be treated to two quality Lake Chelan Valley fireworks shows in celebration of the 4th of July.

The community of Manson is gearing up for the “big show” with the 45th Annual Manson 4th of July fireworks display over the lake at Manson Bay.  Thursday night’s display is scheduled to start at 10:15 pm. The festivities in Manson will include live music from the LakeBoys starting at 7 pm at Manson Bay Park.

Two days later, the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce will present Chelan’s Rockin “6th” of July fireworks show starting at dark Saturday night July 6th. The fireworks will be set off from a barge anchored off Don Morse Park. The public can view the display from a number of vantage points including Don Morse Park, Lakeside Park, the old bridge or from the water in a boat. Watercraft operators are advised to stay clear of the fireworks barge.

Residents and visitors are advised that Chelan is a fireworks free county. If you’d like to watch the fireworks show from the water, but don’t have a boat public fireworks cruises are being offered by the Lady of the Lake for both shows.
