4th of July Fireworks

The Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce invites you to the annual 4th of July Fireworks celebration on Saturday, July 4, 2020.


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.

We encourage families to come out and spend a day at Arnold’s Park Amusement Park and then pop up a lawn chair or spread out a blanket on the lawn at Preservation Plaza and get ready to enjoy this truly spectacular fireworks display. Spending your day on the water, that's okay...arrive by boat for the most up-close and personal view.

The memories this event creates for generations begins with your donations.

Any donation - big or small, goes a long way!

 Thank you to our 2020 donors!

We are thankful for your contribution to this memorable tradition.
