Default Best 4th of July Fireworks Display on Lake Winnipesaukee

My wife and I have only ever seen the fireworks in Meredith but I'm curious to know if people prefer one towns firework show that are on the lake over another. Meredith's fireworks lasted about 15 minutes, is that the norm?

I went to Alton Bay this year as a change as we normally go to Wolfeboro. We all felt the fireworks at Alton we’re better...

Went to the Meredith show as well & thought is was one of their better displays !!

Never seen so many boats up the entire Bay - including the Mount !

Compared to this year or in general? Wolfeboro's lasted just under 30 minutes, though the grand finale was just ok.

Default Center Harbor

Center Harbor has been the best for years now. Most people think the finale is happening at least 3 times during the show. Must have been a thousand boats there last night

Compared to the last 11 or so years I have gone to Wolfeboro. Alton had an excellent display this year!

Agreed... it was amazing and gets better every year. Not to mention the Center Harbor Band. They played wonderfully. Great family outing.

Thumbs up

I also agree with eveyone about Center Harbor!! We have always gone to Meredith but wanted a change. So this year we went to Center Harbor and they were absolutely fantastic..... Great show, great music from bandstand the one performer they had omg she could sing. They also had the Boyscouts selling popcorn which was perfect.
