The annual Fourth of July Fireworks Extravaganza at Lake Tenkiller has been postponed until Labor Day Weekend due to the current high water level of the lake.
The Greater Tenkiller Area Association's Fourth of July Fireworks Extravaganza has been postponed until Sept. 5 on Labor Day Weekend. The water level in the lake is at 26 feet above normal, which has hampered lake access for people wanting to launch their boats. John Ellis, association member, said, "The association feels that more people will be able to safely enjoy the fireworks show if we wait until September when, hopefully, the lake level is back to normal."
Ellis said the marinas, restaurants and other businesses on and around the lake are open and will welcome visitors. Tenkilller State Park and many of the U.S. Corps of Engineers Campgrounds still have some camping spots open, so call to see what is available. Call Tenkiller State Park at 918-489-5025, Greenleaf State Park at 918-487-5622, or the Corps Office at 918-487-2003.
