North Shore Lake Tahoe Fireworks
4th of July is a busy weekend for all of Lake Tahoe. Many of the areas offer fireworks and family activities. This year I witnessed the fireworks in King’s Beach, North Shore of Lake Tahoe. It’s been a few years since I’ve seen them. We usually go backpacking on 4th of July weekend. I shot the grand finale of the King’s Beach fireworks and here’s the video in case you missed them. Many boats were in the water and tons of people on the beach but they were hard to see in the dark.
Other places to see great fireworks on 4th of July weekend if you are in Lake Tahoe are Incline Village and South Shore. The Red, White and Tahoe Blue puts many fun activities for the community of Incline Village and Crystal Bay. Among their activities are a Parade, Rubber Ducky Race, Dunk Tank, Wine & Cheese Event, Community breakfasts, Ice Cream Social & Chalk Drawing Contest for kids and BBQs. You can visit their site for more information and a calendar of events.
South Shore, Lake Tahoe puts a spectacular fireworks diplay. As their website claims the firworks display has been voted by the American Pyrotechnics Association as “one of the top 5 displays of the nation”. Maybe next year, I’ll go and see it.Other fireworks in the area are Squaw Valley (pretty spectacular one mainly because of location however they were canceled this year due to fire concerns), Tahoe City, West Shore, Truckee (Donner Lake).
Do you know of any other spectacular fireworks in the nation? Where are they? Did you visit any of the fireworks mentioned above? What did you think?
