July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza – ALTERNATE LOCATION

The Show Will Go On! Due to extremely high water levels at Grapevine Lake, we have relocated the launch site for the City’s annual July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza to The Great Wolf Lodge. Grapevine Lake and our lake parks have ZERO visibility, and no access.

We highly recommend arriving at your selected location before 8:30pm as lots will fill up and roadway closures will begin.

The fireworks display will begin at 9:30pm on Thursday, July 4 with viewing locations and parking areas shown in this map. The legend also notes parking lots that may require a fee.

All city-managed parking lots, the Great Wolf Lodge parking area, and the Gaylord Texan lot (address listed above) will open at 6pm. Carpooling is encouraged, if possible.

While we know people love to spend July 4th and the weekend at the lake, we highly recommend finding an alternative location this year for a safer, more enjoyable experience, since no fireworks can be seen from the lake.  Here’s what you need to know:

  • Impact of High Lake Levels: Most parks and boat ramps are closed. 🚧
  • Potential Hazards Due to Flooding: Be aware of shoreline and water hazards. Check the Grapevine Lake Potential Shoreline Hazards Map before boating. 🗺️

Open Lake Parks with Limited Parking:

  • Oak Grove Park (very limited)
  • Rockledge Park: $20 per car entry fee
  • Mariner Park (Silver Lake Marina): $20 per car entry fee

Please note: Once these parks reach capacity, they will be closed.

Open Boat Ramps with fee:

  • Farris Branch Boat Ramp: $10 per launch
  • Silver Lake Marina Boat Ramp: $20 per launch
