The Lake Burton Fireworks Show is a beloved annual tradition in the North Georgia Mountains. The show is held on the Saturday night of the 4th of July weekend and is easily one of the state's largest and most impressive fireworks displays. The fireworks are launched from Billy Goat Island and can be seen all over the lake. Boaters and landlubbers gather to enjoy the show, which features a dazzling array of colors and shapes. The fireworks echo throughout the surrounding mountains, and boat horns and whistles fill the air as people celebrate our nation's independence. The Lake Burton Fireworks Show is a magical experience and a must-see for anyone who loves fireworks. The show is 100% community funded, so your donation helps to make it possible.
