Fireworks Over Lake Hamilton July 4
Some of my favorite memories when I lived in Hot Springs were being out in a boat and watching the fireworks show over the water. However, you don't have to be on the lake to enjoy the celebration. Fireworks will be fired off from the middle of the lake from barges that are located on the east side of Highway 7 at the first Highway 7 bridge just across from the DoubleTree Inn. The fireworks will of course be synched up with my former country radio station US 97 (97.5). Just in case it rains the fireworks will be rescheduled for Monday, July 5. Visit Hot Springs is sponsoring the fireworks show.
