This Week at Grand Lake - June 10, 2024

It's Almost Fireworks Season...

Good Morning!

We are cookin’ now! Not much rain in the forecast, lots of sunshine and temps in the 80s and 90s - summer is here, folks.

Which means, it is also almost fireworks season. You can tell by all the big tents popping up all over the place.

This means the 3 biggest shows on the lake are all looking for your support. Financial support, that is.

If you click on the link to this week’s Grand Lake Bum down below, you’ll see some info on donating to the Monkey Island Fireworks.

The Grand Lake Fireworks show in Disney has a new domain/website where you can donate at

And, you can find out how to contribute to the Duck Creek Fireworks on their website:
