The Town of Mammoth Lakes in partnership with Crowley Lake Fish Camp is extremely proud to bring back the Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular to Crowley Lake this Sunday, July 4, 2021.

The Independence Day fireworks show promises to be a bright and striking display of color in the Eastern Sierra night sky. This year’s custom designed “Sky Concert” will propel over 851 shells into the Eastern Sierra sky for a mesmerizing 17 minutes beginning at approximately 9:15 p.m. (weather permitting). The show will simulcast live on KMMT 106.5 – tune in and enjoy!

The Town of Mammoth Lakes would like to acknowledge L.D.C. and Mono County Community Services Area 1 for their generous donations and long-standing support of this generational event at Crowley Lake.

Since incorporating in 1984, the Town of Mammoth Lakes has been celebrating Independence Day with a spectacular fireworks show. The Town contracts Pyro Spectaculars by Souza to light up the sky above Crowley Lake. Souza is well known for doing some of the largest and most spectacular fireworks displays in the world.

Admission to the Fourth of July Fireworks Show is once again only $25.00 per vehicle (excludes camping), and $5.00 for walk-ins (children 12 & under are free). Celebrate Independence Day with live Americana music on the lawn from 6:00 to 8:00pm before the spectacular fireworks show.

The 4-day camp permitting at Crowley Lake Fish Camp for the Fourth of July begins on Thursday, July 1  and ends on Monday, July 5, 2021. The entire lake shore at the South Landing of Crowley Lake will be open for camping, and the fee is only $125 per vehicle including the Independence Day fireworks show.

The North Landing/North Shore of Crowley Lake will be closed beginning at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 3, 2021, thru 12:00 p.m. Monday, July 5, 2021.

    I totally agree…. historical droughts do not need fireworks to increase the fire hazards…

    For me it is not understandable that fireworks are taking place due to the high risk of forest fires

      The fireworks are set up on the shore of Crowley Lake. The fireworks launch from the shore and explode over the water.
