Boats surround Starnes Island as the Lake Travis Independence Day Fireworks display begins.

Starnes Island will once again be host to the biggest firework show on the lake. Starnes Island, just offshore from VIP Marina and Beachside Billy’s, has been host to great fireworks on the lake for years. This year’s show is sponsored by Volente Beach Resort.
