The Fireworks Extravaganza is one of the largest fireworks displays in Arkansas choreographed to music broadcast on 101.9 The Lake-KSUG. Breathtaking fireworks will be shot from a site directly across the lake from Dam Site Park, a spectacular view for those joining us from their boat on the water.
