July 4th weekend will draw thousands of people to the shores of Grand Lake and AM Pyrotechnics, LLC has promised to provide Grand Lakers a spectacular fireworks show on July 3rd, 2010. AM Pyrotechnics was the winner of the Judges Grand Award for Artistic Excellence at the 2004 and 2009 PGI (Pyrotechnics International) conventions. Owner Aaron Mayfield was also awarded with the 2009 Rising Star of Innovation and Entrepreneurship from Missouri Center, a statewide recognition for his diligence, creativity and business development success. The Missouri Senate and House of Representatives also passed resolutions (SR-115 and HR-219) to applaud Aaron for his success. We are looking forward to a great fireworks show from Aaron and his crew.

The Fireworks show will take place at dusk and will be held between the two spillways on the water in Disney. This is a great opportunity for you to get together with family and friends and barbeque, swim, boat, check out the new Visitors Center and take a tour of the Pensacola Dam. Good locations to watch the fireworks show are the new Visitors Center in Langley, the Pensacola Dam-Langley & Disney, the three Cherokee State Parks-two by the spillways and the one by Pensacola Dam in Disney, on the water in the main channel of Grand Lake, or take the Cherokee Queen.

Grand Lake Fireworks Inc. is still taking donations for the show. For every $100.00 that is donated we can add another 8 inch mortar. For a $500.00 to a $1000.00 donation we can add something very special, but we don’t want to give away the surprise by telling you what it is. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. You can donate here to donate now or mail your donation to Grand Lake Fireworks Inc. P.O. Box 643 Disney, OK 74340.
