First, we have to send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to EVERYONE who has been impacted by the horrible storms of the past week…from our lakefront and lake area friends who have suffered property damage to our friends in Joplin and Central Oklahoma who are dealing with devastation beyond the imagination of most of us…we are all thinking of and praying for each and every one of you.

Now- about Grand Lake Fireworks….it’s coming.  Saturday, July 2nd, between the spillways in Disney, at dark thirty.  Be There!

Alrighty then – It’s Memorial Day Weekend at Grand Lake!!!

We (Grand Lake Fireworks) will be in Dripping Springs on Saturday, selling yummy BBQ sandwiches.  We will be on Warpath (KC Chiefs) houseboat, and should be anchored about 10:30am.  We will be there until we sell out of BBQ!  All the proceeds go to support this year’s show, which will be our biggest ever!

We also want to send a big Fireworks shout-out to our friends Jim & Paula Harbuck, who have very generously donated 2 Barges for this year’s show.  Many of you don’t understand all the different little things that go into putting this event on, and having barges donated is a huge benefit.  Thank You, Jim & Paula!

Lastly…be safe out there this weekend.  The lake came up almost 9 feet in 48 hours earlier this week.  That’s a ton of water (and stuff) coming in to the lake in a very short time.  GRDA has done an awesome job of getting the lake to safe level for the weekend as we are back below the 750′ elevation, and going down, as of Friday morning.

But, even with the lake level stabilizing, there is a bunch of stuff floating out there, so be careful and keep an eye out.  And, if you see someone that needs help….well then help them!

Alright, enough of that…Hey, Grand Lakers…have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend…and make sure to remember and appreciate the reason for the holiday.  Be safe, and we’ll see you in The Drip on Saturday!
