Lakes and other bodies of water are the prime spot to enjoy all sorts of summer activities. From swimming to boating to fishing, there is always something for everyone. And, with the 4th of July coming up, here are a few of our favorite Lake Chelan activities to celebrate America’s birthday this summer.
Chelan’s Rockin’ 4th of July Fireworks
An American 4th of July tradition for hundreds of years, fireworks are symbols of our independence. Therefore, this makes it one of the best times of the year. On July 3rd, Chelan’s Rockin’ 4th of July Fireworks hope to continue the spirit of the holiday with their annual celebration, sponsored by Vin du Lac Winery! At the winery, everyone is invited to enjoy the live music and Texas barbecue starting at 3pm. Vin du Lac Winery also has a great view of Don Morse Park, where the fireworks are taking place at 10pm.
Manson Fourth of July Fireworks Display
On July 4th around 7pm, head northwest to Manson to see the largest fireworks display in Eastern Washington! The Manson Chamber of Commerce is hosting their 43rd Annual Fireworks show and Independence Day celebration. Locally known as the “Big Show,” the celebration starts with live music at 7pm at Manson Bay Park and concludes with the fireworks starting at 10:15pm.
Lake Chelan Poker Run
Always the 2nd Saturday in July, the Lake Chelan Poker Run is the biggest event for the Lake Chelan Boating Club. A third of the proceeds go directly to charities and activities, including boater safety classes and college scholarships. And of course, there’s prize money. Last year, over $5,000 in winnings were distributed. There was also a large raffle where the lucky raffle winner took home a 4 seater towable tube! This year, the 14th Lake Chelan Poker Run takes place on July 9th. Join the Lake Chelan Boating Club families to help make a huge positive impact on the community.
Looking forward to fireworks?
Lake Chelan during the 4th of July is exciting and you don’t want to miss out on any of the activities offered. Stay with us at Lakeside Lodge and Suites to be close to all the action!
