9:30 PM: Watch SC’s Largest Fireworks Show on Lake Murray

Fireworks will launch at dark (roughly 9:30 PM) from two lake locations: Spence Island & Dreher Island.  Fireworks DO NOT launch from the park sites at the dam. The best viewing location is from a boat.

Did you know? The fireworks show is synchronized with music.  Tune your radio to hear patriotic music while enjoying the view
*If you choose to stream the music there will be a delay. The best way to watch/listen is to tune your radio to B106 the old-fashioned way.

The fireworks are funded through Capital City/Lake Murray Country’s fundraising efforts at the Taste of Lake Murray each year, private donations, and support from our sponsors.

Donations are accepted year-round at the Visitor’s Center (2184 North Lake Drive, Columbia), or at LakeMurrayCountry.com/donate.
