Tips for Safe Firework Viewing from the Water

The 4th of July weekend is officially here and at Lake of the Ozarks, that means boating and fireworks! Our boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks knows how exciting holiday weekends are for our fellow boaters. It means you get to enjoy all day out on the water doing what you love and then catching some spectacular fireworks displays around the area at night. There's nothing quite like viewing fireworks from the water. Check out a few of the awesome places you can catch these fantastic displays around the Lake of the Ozarks this holiday weekend and some quick safety tips to keep top of mind:

Firework Viewing Safety Tips:

  • Be aware of other boaters when navigating to and from crowded fireworks displays
  • Pack jackets or blankets on the boat to help keep the evening chill away
  • Bring snacks and drinks for your entire boatload -- you don't want anyone getting hungry or thirsty out on the water. It's important to stay hydrated, especially after a long day on the water. 
  • Keep a safe distance from the firework barges. Debris and other particles can fall from the sky when fireworks explode -- try to keep a safe distance away from the fireworks themselves. 
  • Designate a captain. It's a holiday weekend and we know it's fun to get out on the water and have a good time but it's vital that you have a designated captain on board to safely navigate your boat back to the dock.
