Their Memorial Day fireworks are offered at their Swimmin' Hole Lawn at the resort, but can also be viewed from Table Rock Lake. Drinks, appetizers, and live entertainment come with Big Cedar's special Sunset Fireworks Cocktail Cruise on their Lady Liberty yacht. Reservations are required.
- You can legally purchase fireworks in many areas in the State of Missouri, so you'll find plenty of roadside stands and stores that carry them.
- Be mindful of laws and local ordinances governing the use of fireworks; information can be found on city websites, including Bransonmo.gov.
- The use of fireworks within Branson's city limits is permitted only on July 3 and 4, but the hours are limited and specific, so it's best to check their website for more information.
- Although you'll find plenty of roadside stands around nearby Springfield, Missouri, using them within Springfield's city limits is prohibited, and the law is strictly enforced.
If you love the color, the sparkle, the boom, and the brilliance of bursting fireworks and the festivities that surround them, make Branson your destination for celebrating the fabulous fourth, commemorating Memorial and Labor Days, and for welcoming in the New Year...Branson loves to celebrate all these holidays with a bang!
