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. Here is our video flying out over the show.

This year’s show starts just at dark on SUNDAY July 3rd and best observation is: 1) by boat – there will be over 1000 boats in the water that evening surrounding the island, 2) from one of the many hilltops surrounding the lake in the Volente area or 3) get front row seats at Volente Beach Resort’s own Independence Day celebration event.

Date: Sunday, July 3rd, 2022
