The Turlock Irrigation District and the Don Pedro Recreation Agency will host the annual Fireworks on the Water show at Lake Don Pedro this Fourth of July.
The half-hour show will begin at 9:30 p.m. on July 4, on the water by Don Pedro Dam. The show can be viewed from the Blue Oaks Group Area, the Visitor Center/Helipad area, or from the water.
The cost is $15 per vehicle and it is strongly recommended visitors arrive by 8:00 p.m. Food, cold beverages and patriotic goods will be available for purchase.
The Sonora Police Explorers and other community nonprofit organizations will assist with parking vehicles at the Blue Oaks Recreation Area, the Visitor Center and the Heliport areas by the spillway.
No parking will be allowed on Bonds Flat Road. To expedite departure from the parking areas immediately after the show, the California Highway Patrol will be directing all spectators to turn right onto Bonds Flat Road, except at Fleming Meadows where those exiting the park will be required to turn left. Spectators are urged to consider this information when they choose a place from which to view the fireworks if they are concerned about which direction they need to travel to get home. A map showing the end of show traffic flow will be provided to spectators upon arrival.
TID advises arriving early in the day and enjoying the recreation area and swimming at Fleming Meadows.
Dogs are not allowed in any of the developed facilities at Lake Don Pedro.
