The Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce would like to thank everyone who was involved in what made for an incredible Fourth of July. J & M Displays put on yet another fantastic show over West Lake Okoboji, enjoyed by thousands of friends and families. Even with a bit of rain, Lakes Area visitors and locals alike knew that the fireworks display would be worth it!

Thank you to the DNR, Arnolds Park Amusement Park, local law enforcement, volunteers and local media including KUOO, Lakes News Shopper and Dickinson County News. Donors with gifts of $250+ were acknowledged during a patriotic salute on KUOO 103.9 Campus Radio prior to the fireworks show. You can also find a listing of all donors on www.okobojichamber.com.

To all who made a donation toward the fireworks show, thank you! Your contribution is so greatly appreciated by generations who continue to enjoy this Okoboji tradition. Plenty of cherished memories were sure to have been made over the holiday. We hope you enjoyed the show!
