Like most places in Lake County, Clear Lake Campground and the city of Clearlake do not allow fireworks of any kind. If you're coming to Camp for 4th of July weekend, absolutely no fireworks will be permitted. That doesn't mean you can't enjoy a fireworks show over the lake. Here are safe public fireworks displays planned to celebrate the 2023 holiday:
City of Clearlake: Austin Park
Fireworks will be launched from the Austin Park area in Clearlake at 9PM on July 1, 2022, thanks to the Lakeshore Lions Club. If you drive to Austin Park to watch the fireworks, be sure to go early to get a parking place and enjoy the evening concert in the band shell, 7-9PM. The parade, starting at 11:00 on July 1, runs from Redbud Park to Austin Park, where there will be vendor booths and the worm races.
June 30-July 4, noon-10PM, there's a big carnival at Austin Park too.
