Fireworks on July 5th (Rain Date on the 6th)

Jul 05, 2024 - 09:15pm


The Lake Barcroft fireworks show this year is scheduled for Friday, July 5 starting at 9:15 PM. Keep your fingers crossed we don’t need to use the rain date, July 6! Here is a run through of some of the things that will happen and the rules we need to follow to make it a safe and enjoyable event. 

  1. Beach 3 will be CLOSED all day on Friday, July 5th by order of the Fire Marshal. The Beach will remain closed until Saturday morning after the volunteer clean-up crew finishes cleaning up the debris from the fireworks show. 
  2. There will be NO ACCESS TO BOAT RACKS on Friday, July 5th. If you have a boat that is stored on Beach 3 and you want to use it on July 5th or July 6th, then you will need to get it off the dock on Thursday. After the fireworks arrive, the Fire Marshal will not allow access due to the danger of having explosives on the beach. 
  3. Bring your Beach Tags- our Security and Lifeguarding staff will be checking beach tags and will turn you away if you do not have them. Please make sure to accompany any guests down to the beach as they will not be permitted to attend unless they are with a resident host.
  4. NO personal fireworks are permitted on land or on watercraft due to risk of fire and personal injury. Remember, there is no swimming permitted right before, during or after the fireworks show and any watercraft or float needs to be seen with a light at all times to prevent accidental collision.
  5. Best places to view the Fireworks:
  • Beach 2 is a great spot but please try and get there early and carpool as parking will be a challenge if there is too much traffic right before the event. Please follow the directions of security and staff when parking and watch out for traffic.
  • Stoneybrae between Waterway and Crosswoods: We have secured a permit to close off Stoneybrae Drive to thru traffic from 8 PM - 10 PM for the show. This is right up from Beach 3 so it should be a good viewpoint- bring lawn chairs and set-up on the street!
  • From the Water: If you plan on watching the show from the water, please review our Float and Boat safety sheet before you head out. 
  • Woman's Garden: This location is less crowded and a pleasant area to view the show. 

Everything we do around fireworks starts and ends with your safety, the safety of the technicians handling the explosives, and the visitors. Please adhere to our rules, regulations, and guidelines for your safety and the safety of others and don't forget to bring your Beach tag. 


Happy 4th of July, we hope that you enjoy the show!
