Angle Lake Lights Up! But is the Future Bright for Fireworks?

This year's 4th of July celebration at Angle Lake Park was a resounding success! We owe a huge thank you to the Angle Lake Shore Club for stepping in and sponsoring a dazzling firework display that capped off a day of family fun.

However, as we celebrate the vibrant display over the lake, a shadow of uncertainty hangs over our beloved fireworks tradition. As many of you know, the City Council supported a shift toward funding an Electronic Drone Show, ultimately eliminating funding for the traditional private-public fireworks display this year.

The Angle Lake Shore Club's last-minute sponsorship ensured a spectacular show, but the future remains unclear.  Can we rely on private sponsorships every year?

This is where we, the Angle Lake community, come in.

For generations, an All-American Traditional 4th of July fireworks have been a cornerstone of our lakeside celebrations. The dazzling lights reflected on the water, the shared "oohs" and "ahs" – these memories are woven into the fabric of our community spirit.

We urge you to join us in voicing your support for the continuation of this cherished American tradition.

Here are some ways you can help:

  • Contact the City Council: Let them know how much the fireworks mean to you and urge them to find a way to secure funding in the future.
  • Spread the Word: Talk to your neighbors, friends, and family about the importance of keeping the fireworks tradition alive. Consider making a pledge of financial support to ensure a display in 2025.
  • Join the Conversation: Attend community meetings and voice your support for future fireworks displays.

Together, we can ensure that the skies over Angle Lake continue to light up with joy, not just on the 4th of July, but for many years to come.
