Independence Day is fast approaching, so here is the scoop on 4th of July fireworks displays in the Lake Geneva Wi area. Many communities around Geneva Lake put on their own shows on the night of the 4th, but Grand Geneva Resort does it a night before. July 3rd Grand Geneva has a great fireworks display over a pond on one of their golf courses. It is free and guaranteed fun. In addition to the fireworks, there will be games, face painting, crafts, and much more. All they ask is that you bring a few non-perishable food items as a donation to support the Lake Geneva Area Food Pantry. The Grand Geneva Resort is located east of Hwy 12 and downtown Lake Geneva, on the north side of Hwy 50.
Fontana Wi and Geneva National both put on wonderful fireworks shows the evening of the Fourth of July. Fontana’s show is over the lake and is visible pretty much anywhere near the lake. It gets pretty crowded but the atmosphere is always very friendly and you can feel the excitement in the air, so it is a great experience. Just make sure to get there early to find parking – and bring a lawn chair and blanket.
Geneva National puts on a BBQ with their free fireworks show (although the food and bar is not free). Just head out to their club house to enjoy the food, drinks, and great entertainment. Geneva National Golf Club is located west of downtown Lake Geneva Wi, just east of Hwy. 67. Reservations are necessary.
