4th of July Fireworks

For over 40 years, with additional help from many generous business owners and private citizens, the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce has funded and produced the annual 4th of July Fireworks celebration over West Lake Okoboji and filled our Okoboji sky with color and excitement. This tradition draws thousands of spectators to our beautiful lakes area to celebrate our nation’s birthday and honor the patriotism of those who made our independence possible.
