Summer has officially arrived, which means it is nearly time for the 4th of July and fireworks! The Ardmore Tourism Authority is once again proud to partner with Lake Murray State Park to coordinate and present the annual fireworks display. The show will take place on Independence Day, Thursday, July 4th. At sunset (approximately 9:15 PM), Lake Murray State Park will shine bright in honor of our nation’s independence.
It is truly an honor for the Ardmore Tourism Authority to coordinate the fireworks display and we are proud to report our attendance has risen again this year thanks to the quality of the show and the incredible venue of Lake Murray State Park. This year, the ATA anticipates another record crowd for this year’s vibrant display.
Mita Bates, President of the Ardmore Chamber and Ardmore Tourism Authority states, “We are happy to have the community support to again provide the funding for this annual holiday tradition. Without the partnership with financial supporters and the wonderful staff at Lake Murray, this spectacular show would not be possible.”
To reach the viewing area, take Scenic State Highway 77 (Lake Murray Drive) south. Then, turn east at the former Park Office before taking a right at Lem Roberts Road. Continue down the road to the R.C Flying Fields before reaching the designated parking areas. This area and many others at the park offer plenty of space for parking and picnicking. And as always, this event is free and open to the public.
Everyone is encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets for seating, as well as plenty of water and snacks to enjoy throughout the show. So, make sure to head out to Lake Murray State Park plenty early to get a great spot and enjoy an impressive firework display over Lake Murray with your family and friends! This Independence Day celebration will be a good, old-fashioned event for all ages so you won’t want to miss out on this patriotic celebration of our nation’s independence!
