This Weekend at Grand Lake - July 5, 2024

More Fireworks!

Good Morning!

Well… that had to be an adventure for a lot of you!

The Duck Creek Fireworks started a little early in coordination with nature’s fireworks, a little rain, and it was pretty darn cool.

Another impressive show - as always. Thanks to Joe and his crew at Arrowhead for coordinating the show every year and thanks to all of you who donated.

But… we aren’t done yet. We’ve got 2 more nights of fireworks lighting up the sky, so read on below for the details.

Plus, everything else you need to know for this weekend at Grand Lake!

Collegiate Waves is bringing officially licensed team towables and tubes to a lake near you - like Grand Lake! Now… OU and OSU fans… not yet. Those schools won’t be available this summer.

Lake Level - As of 7 am, the lake level was 744.26’ with no gates open and minimal generation. Lake temps are just like bath water - pretty much in the 80s all over.

Food Truck Round-Up - This now annual event continues through Saturday at Marina Del Rey Resort near Ketchum, from 11 am to 8 pm each day. And, their pool is open ($10 day pass) and they have courtesy slips if you want to come by boat. There is a number posted at the docks for you to call and they will pick you up and take you up the hill to the food and fun. I believe there are 8 or 9 different trucks on hand, so a great variety - check it out!
