Events for the 4th of July weekend at Lake Martin

Looking for the best place to watch fireworks?

Russell Lands on Lake Martin puts on one of the largest free fireworks shows in the southeast. There is nothing like watching fireworks over Lake Martin in my opinion. Thousands of boats crowd in Kowaliga Bay-from Kowaliga Bridge to the west to Martin Dam to the east. While that is free, I don’t recommend it for the newbies or the faint of heart. Driving harum-scarum at night is serious work. I recommend paying the modest gate fee at Lake Martin Amphitheater. It gets you an entire concert and the best view of the fireworks as they explode over the water!
