"Lights on the Lake"
Set to music, Lake Tahoe's 4th of July "Lights
on the Lake" is considered to be the largest synchronized Fireworks Show west
of the Mississippi. Visitors and locals alike flock
to the South Shore of Lake Tahoe to enjoy its annual 4th of July
The "Lights on the Lake" fireworks are launched from
an offshore barge at approximately 9:30/9:45pm*.
Fireworks are visible from
all over town — scroll down to see info on the best South Shore views.
Best Views for Fireworks Show
— Lake Tahoe South Shore
Short of actually being on a paddle-wheeler or private boat cruising the lake, Nevada
Beach is a great place to see the fireworks — it's
located off Hwy 50, just north of Stateline, 2 miles east of the casinos on Elk Point Road.
Regan and El Dorado Beaches (on the shore where
Hwy 50 meets the Lake) also offer good views. Other good vantage points include Baldwin Beach (off Hwy 89);
Bijou Community Park (on the corner of Johnson and Al Tahoe Blvds); Edgewood-Tahoe (ticketed event) and adjacent Lakeside Beach.
